It’s the summer. There’s an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show, we set out to improve your private room karaoke experience. What should one NEVER do when singing? Who and what is a designated S.I.P.? What should you always look for when selecting a rap song? And what’s suitable off-the-mic back-of-the-room etiquette? All that, plus “Cruise Ship Karaoke Steve,” hand-clappin’, Walker Texas Ranger’s favorite band, our personal “go-to” jams, and whole lot of bad singing.

And remember: “Karaoke audiences are like dogs and bears — they can smell fear.”
