A Scott Linn jingle is WAY overdue. So here ya go...

Special thanks to producer Jason Fuse, who makes every jingle he touches MUCH better than it otherwise would be. And Hamilton mastermind, and hip hop aficionado Luke Overbey, for going to a quiet part of the house LATE on a Sunday night to perfect his vocals for this track. And to both of them for saying yes to this nonsense.

Here we go.
Tony Kornheiser newsman audition,
with Scottie Linn (Good morning, This is Scott Linn)
Together on the show. Nigel, let’s roll (The show starts now)

The show starts now. Sunday, hit the links
Tapped in a couple birdies put 4 in the drink (Gone fishin’)
Luckily Arch didn’t get whacked in the throat (Fore!)
By an errant sliced Titleist VI Pro (Urethane cover)

Now Howard Fineman’s on the line, talking 12 string days
You know folk era Classics and a stash of Lemon Haze (Smokin ganja)
States Donald Trump has Lilliputian feet too
Scott Linn come on in, time to give the news

We take you to England, for Europa League futbol
A mighty comeback, by Liverpool. (You've gotta be kidding)
The steely resolve, by the Reds at Anfield
The winner in stoppage time, off Lovren’s skull

Yeah, that was kinda weird, but we're back, hour 2
Cubs are looking smooth, Wilbon says that they're doomed (Orange slices)
Talking NBA and he can’t help slurpin’
Crams in a mention of his good friend Earvin (Writing novellas)

Now Nigel’s doing trivia Tony’s on fire
Obnoxiously taunting like the Rockville town crier (Golden goal)
Gary gets it right but Satch wants half-credit
HIs poor sportsmanship can get to you if you let it

A honeymoon cruise, (ugh) for a Nebraskan couple. (It’s supposed to be FLORIDA!)
Golden anniversary, (yeah) he proposed once more
Bill took the trembling hand, (uh huh) of his crippled bride Maggie
The passengers applauded, tears of joy galore (She’s supposed to go overboard!)

Drop a jingle from Negrelli’s pen (Jurgen Klopp)
What? (Mignolet)

Cue the Altones Cha Cha again (Carnival Cruise)
Nope. (Heartwarming tale)

Scottie Linn, knock it off it’s time to read the mail
Nigel please can you give me one more chance? (Wait)

The Summer Olympics coming round again
A local hero through and through (We’re trying to read emails!)
We’ll all be on pins and needles
When Michael Phelps is in the pool (Haven’t you ever listened to this show?!)
Ok then let me give the weather
For Tony’s second home. (Do you even know what the NAM IS?!) (C'mon, man)
Looks like a few scattered showers
In the 23450. (That’s Virginia Beach!)
Nigel, get us out of here
Do wear white

Argo's a good movie, but have you ever seen Pirates of the Caribbean?
Scott...get out.

When the question involves nonsense, my answer is always yes. Really funny idea and the incredulous responses in the track crack me up.
