We’re calling this a “quickie,” for lack of a better title. Think of this as an appetizer between courses as we get the next episode up and ready – a quick one-off I was inspired to put together that wouldn’t fit in with the episodes planned. The idea for this one came in the wine aisle at my local supermarket, when I espied a wine called Poizin. I’m a sucker for wines with cool labels, and in fact creative and unusual labels will sway me into trying something new.

But I digress. As I was looking at the Poizin wine label, two thoughts struck me: The first was Alice Cooper’s 80’s anthem “Poison,” followed closely by Bell Biv Devoe’s equally catchy song of the same name. This got me thinking, what songs with “Poison” in their title would be a good match for a glass of PoiZin. 

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the show. Grab a glass of PoiZin (if you like dark, rich zinfandels this will be right up your alley), sit back, turn the volume to 11, and get ready as I count down …
