Well funny story about this episode....unlocked from the vaults after a year. This audio & video was recorded in front of a live audience at Naked Vine in Chesterfield, MO February 11, 2020. Things got weird after that, I kept holding this episode thinking I could use it to help promote when the showcase was back, but that hasn't happened. I apologize it took a year, but here it is in all it's glory!

This was a great night! I invited songwriters Steven Woolley, Hal Pascale & Justin Johnson to join me. You'll get all the stories behind some of their best songs in an intimate listening room setting.
