Wouldn't that make a great album title? I've had it on my to do list for so long with no progress at using it. So I decided to just make a podcast using that title. Maybe it'll inspire me to actually finish a Christmas album.... Or maybe not.

News:

Thanks to everyone who voted in the Podcast Awards. Winners will be announced in January.

"Not Every Day Is St Patrick's Day" on January 17th. Join my Street Team if you want to be a part of the promotion. Sample the album now with "Celtic Music Is Freedom". Now on CD Baby, Amazon and iTunes.

It's time to get political. But this isn't about a specific political party. This is all about a Congress that not doing its job and needs to be held accountable. Help America see some much needed change to the way Congress runs. If we work together, I believe we can make great things happen.

News:

Special Feature: Congressional Reform Act of 2012. Make sure you read the snopes article about it before you sign the petition. There are some errors in the Act that should be addressed.
