Aug. 13: Anthony Cools' Spell
New! Get bookmarked AAC edition

Whether you buy hypnotism or not, there's no denying that Anthony Cools has Las Vegas under his spell. The Paris Las Vegas headliner has become a somehwat unlikely Strip entrepreneur, responsible for four shows besides his own including Bobby Slayton and Penny Lane at the Tropicana and Mental and Freaks at O'Sheas. Cools explains how he became the king of middle-brow and why he thinks some of the more disgusting acts that take place at Freaks are really "quite romantic."

In Banter: Amy and Steve discuss Mental and Freaks, another MJ raid, Laughlin sees an uptick, an accidental ReHab visit, a Maggiano's deal for Amy, and more.

Anyway you can have iTunes not push out both formats? Love the new AAC format, but now I get both each week. Sorry I'm not smart enough to tell you how though.


Jason - I'm still trying out the AAC thing, so I'm not ready yet to break into two feeds. This week, for instance, was 1st time I actually got the chapter thing right. Just delete the extra one for now, please. I will create a second feed soon when I get the hang of this.
