In The Music Room

Had a great time at the Wildflower Festival on Friday. It was fun to be the kick-off set for the Acoustic Cafe….good to see a lot of music friends out there.

A great Dallas songwriter named Randy Tredway has created an online radio show that he calls “In the Music Room.” Randy invites musicians in to the studio for five songs sets, and conversation that usually ends up making for a nice 30-minute-or-so show.

Randy invited me down to record a show a few weeks back, and he let me know over the weekend that you can listen to it now.

You can find the website for “In the Music Room” here. Just scroll down until you see my name and picture, and click on the name to hear the whole show. (and while you’re there check out some of the other shows too…)

Or, you can click here to go directly to the show.

Hope you enjoy it…and many thanks to Randy for making it possible.

(ps: there’s a two minute song sung by Randy’s cohost, Helen, at the beginning of the show…EF)
