We’ve got a listener phone call this week, wondering if we consider Randy Newman a Novelty Musician (answer: Yes.), but before we get to that, we’ve got discussions about the silliest sport on Earth (Rugby), whether there’s intelligent life on other planets (probably, and we hope they never come to visit us), as well as talk about eating well and keeping regular. Also, if anyone knows the reason that Lynrd Skynrd gives a shout-out to the Governor in their song Sweet Home Alabama, please let us know. Was it because of some sort of Highway Reform, or was it something having to do with Segregation?

Comments welcome!
