A smooth, jazzy sort of Friday with Mel Torme's 2nd biggest fan, Mike Russell. He channels the spirit of the Velvet Fog, and this show just cruises along on memories of Looney Tunes, NBC sitcoms, that weird period in the late 90s when people liked lounge music for 5 minutes, and movies. Movies like Safe House, which Mike thinks is like skim-milk Jason Bourne. Movies like Episode I 3D, which Mike didn't actually watch, but Jar Jar Binks himself reviewed in the Portland Mercury.
