Especially when I have new songs to play and talk about. This short-ish episode features highlights from two recent radio interviews, along with live performance of three of my songs. I’ve been on both these shows many times. And I’m always so grateful for the airtime. Plus, playing live on radio is way fun:

From KPIG radio’s “Please Stand By” show, you’ll hear some chatter with host John Sandige. I played my song “Good Souls” from my “Starlite Drive-In Saturday Night” CD, and dedicated it to our late pal Allan Molho. Allan was a HUGE supporter of our local music scene. We miss him.

It was the morning commute hour, so I played “Highway 17” for everyone bravely facing the drive over the hill. I then did a new song, “Tuesday Nights At Eight”, my salute to the incredible comedian Red Skelton. I met him once (no kidding) and told the story behind the song.
