Talking and singing about the Emmys; biking to the red carpet

On the latest podcast from The Frame, forget the limo and the tux!

One Emmy nominee talks about why he's riding his bike to the awards. Tom Smuts, a writer-producer on "Mad Men," has organized a group of cycling Emmy-goers to ride from Santa Monica to the Nokia Theater in Downtown L.A. What's he wearing? An evening jacket from cycling clothing company Rafa.

L.A.-based singer/songwriter Dan Bern, who wrote songs for "Walk Hard" and "Get Him to the Greek," performs two original songs he wrote for this episode of The Frame. They are his odes to the nominees in the Outstanding Comedy Series category....

...and the outstanding Drama Series category...

Hear the full episode of The Frame,including all our Emmy coverage, including a conversation about the currency of the Emmys with's Joe Adalian and Margaret Lyons.  Note: Listen to the end of the episode to find out how Frame host John Horn's bike ride with Tom Smuts almost sent them to the hospital.
