Here's what happened when I was challenged to write a song based on the "word of the week." And the word was... "lubrication!" Wait for it!

Audio: Visits to The WTIP Roadhouse


From time to time, I have the chance to visit The Roadhouse on WTIP North Shore Community Radio.  Not only do I always get to play some tunes, but we always have a lot of laughs and a great discussion!


Here's a link to my most recent visit, which was the last of the "classic" version of The Roadhouse. Look for a new an exciting format in January 2022!
