Show Notes

The Troubled Men turn back the clock a few weeks to return to an earlier, unreleased episode. They're still in the Ring Room, and the joint is jumping. They talk about first experiences at the Willow Inn, faulty shoe laces, fast friends, doorless microwave ovens, a killer musician, and open casket funerals. They also spitball some T-shirt ideas.

He’s seemingly undaunted by a challenge, so let’s see how he meets the test of the Ring Room. Topics include a Mardi Gras wrap-up, Thai food, Lent, a 100th episode party, a recording session, “Judy,” a London childhood, an L.A. teen, Uni High, McCabe’s Music, Michael Ward, the Krewe of Julu, a rift, Helen Gillet, a dirty opera, Santa Cruz, free cigarettes, Walter Payton, Carl LeBlanc, Sun Ra, Fermin Muguruza & the N.O. Basque Orchestra, yoga training in India, a brush with death, a new perspective, a mystery disease, the “Esplanade” film, a debt of gratitude, and much more.
