Chapter 7

The wake of St. Patrick’s Day brings the world a new chapter in this as-read-by-the-author book in podcast form. In this episode:

  • Death of The Mad Russian – Six years to the day of his death, we must wonder: why WAS he so angry?
  • Music for Schnooks: The Cliché-Free Love Segment – Sorry, no puns based on the name of the Elektra Records band, but…well, just listen!

Chapter 6

February is a short month, but not so short that a new chapter isn’t published! In this episode:

  • Growing Up Catholic: Catholic School – Sean talks about his wacky adventures in education under the rule of the Vatican
  • Long Title — Music For Schnooks — Don’t Meet Your Heroes: Talented Dummy Edition – In honor of a recently departed musical hero



  • Sean being confirmed
    Good little Catholic boy, featuring (L-R) Deacon Paul Kolodziej, Bishop Joseph Imesch, some schnook, and apparently Jimmy Kimmel


  • Tork’n’Dorks. That schnook on the left has a weird-looking head, don’t he?

Chapter 5

So far 2019 has proven very busy for this schnook. In this chapter, we go a little bit past my 90-minute threshold, but not by far. Here’s what I have in store for you:

  • “Good afternoon, this is Sean.” Ever wonder what went on when you called tech support? This might give some insight.
  • The Beach Boys: In Defense of 15 Big Ones: I’m joined by a special guest to discuss what was supposed to be Brian Wilson’s comeback album with The Beach Boys. Was it really as bad as many fans think?


Chapter 4

Happy 2019! I hope it’s a good one for all schnooks the world over!

In this episode:

  • You Can’t Spell “January” Without “Jury”
  • Music For Schnooks: I have two ears – don’t tell me to listen to The Beatles in mono!


Chapter 2

It’s the Christmas shopping season. As such, this episode’s focus has…sort of a shopping bend to it.

  • Sean recalls his Golden Age of Malls
  • Who is that Masked Man, anyway?
  • Music For Schnooks: Chicago Folkies Edition
