Pool Hall Blues – September 4, 1954

Sam leaps into Charlie “Black Magic” Walters, a legendary pool player. As Magic, Sam must save “his” granddaughters bar-turned-night club from the loan shark who holds the marker on her place by beating him in a game of pool. One snag: Sam can’t “shoot pool with a shotgun.”

Our guestiest guest, Christopher J. Steward, returns to discuss one of our favorites. Fun fact: This was Dennis’ first complete episode of Quantum Leap as a kid!

Good Morning, Peoria – September 9, 1959

Sam and Dennis are back after a nice holiday vacation! And we’re talking rock & roll, Chubby Checker, Eisenhower & Lutz (look it up kids), and of course, Quantum Leap. This week, it’s the episode “Good Morning, Peoria”. So put on your bobby socks and poodle skirts, and let’s back into the show.

Sam is “Howlin'” Chick Howell, a 1950s DJ, comin’ to you love from WOF in Peoria. Sam is there to stop the city council from banning rock & roll being played over the airwaves, and help make WOF the number one radio station in Peoria.
