Steamy Dean Madonia is a man on the move, constant traveling for gigs and working on multiple musical projects in Nashville. He and Paul sat down to chat in Paul's hotel room after their first show together.  We can all agree that a microphone in front of Dean's face will not go wasted.  www.deanmadonia.com

First of all, look past all the references to prison showers and blow-up dolls.  Once you do that, you'll find a a great interview with Jeff A and Jeff D of ComedySportz Quad-Cities, located in Rock Island, IL.  Paul worked at this club back in the 1900's, and the Jeffs were kind of enough to sit down and discuss the tenants of improv...and prison showers.  Find out more here: http://www.establishmenttheatre.com/

E31 - Brian Babcock

Brian and Paul met up in Kansas City and chatted about where to draw the line, Clint Eastwood style, when a heckler goes too far.  A host of other topics come up, such as how Sweet Home Alabama is actually in two keys at the same time...WHOA!  MIND = BLOWN!

E29 - Pat George of The Entertainment Agency

Piano gigs abroad can be hard to come by, unless you know the right people.  Pat George, CEO of The Entertainment Agency, is one of them, and he's booked pianists in rooms around the world for decades. Jarret talks with him about performing solo versus dueling pianos, how disco killed rock shows, and what bar owners look for in an entertainer. Plus, proof that Diana Krall can't cut it as a singalong pianist.
