Tom Scharpling is the host of The Best Show on WFMU, the director of some of the best indie rock music videos, and perhaps a contender for best Sklarbro Country guest?! His sports knowledge (available for perusal at The Classical) and radio expertise make him the perfect contributor to conversations about Bubba Watson, Kevin Federline, and our new favorite athlete Tina Maze. With Rob Lowe in the news, we check in with his Brat Pack buddy Charlie Sheen who treats us to one of his always-welcome rants. This episode is sponsored by audible.

Who's going to be the first Sklar super fan to Photoshop a book jacket for Into Twin Air: Narrated by Charlie Sheen?

I agree with Kyle, if Tom comes on the show again, he should bring psycho Phillies/Eagles/Flyers fan Philly Boy Roy with him.

If Tommy Wonderful does a K-Fed video, I want to see a Dukes/ Bandit mash-up. "Flash Vs. Fred." "Enos Vs. Junior." "Snowman Vs. Cooter." "Justice Vs. Hogg." It's endless.

Tom Scharpling? That guy's a total dip munch.

Seriously though, great episode, so glad that the Sklars and Kid Jersey have finally joined forces. Would love to see the Sklars on The Best Show!

(obligatory Best Show plug: if anyone's looking to get into the show, I'd recommend starting with this episode from July 2009 wherein Tom and in-studio guest Paul F. Tompkins discuss the Gathering of the Juggalos: http://wfmu.org/flas...1&archive=54334 )

Love the show! Tom was a great guest. Went looking for that short story you mentioned, "The Delicate Sound of Thunder." Found out it's actually "A Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury. Delicate Sound of Thunder is a Pink Floyd live album. Thought I'd mention it since I'm such a shameless smarty-pants.

Found a PDF of the story if anyone's interested: http://www.onebee.co...ay_Bradbury.pdf

Keep up the great work! Would love to see y'all down South sometime!

Also, Tom's Ke$ha video pitch--which was awesome--reminded me that this exists:

"These Days" is by Jackson Browne. Covered by Nico (and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Eef Barzaley, Glen Campbell, etc.)
Enjoy your show....
