Podcast Plays: The Rich Hancock Radio Show & Hyde Pod Corner

Rich HancockHPC-Pic smallA huge thank you to The Rich Hancock Radio Show and Hyde Pod Corner for playing my songs last week! 

Hyde Pod Corner included "Please Don't Wish Me a Merry Christmas" in episode #55 "The Hallowismas Comeback Special."  The show is a combo of "comedy, music, and chat spilled from a British brain into your ears."  It's rather entertaining... made me think of a radio version of Monty Python.  Give a listen, folks!

The Rich Hancock Radio Show is a talk show with music hosted by Rich and Brenda out of Missouri.  They share delightful banter, odd news stories, and tunes that they like.  They kindly played "These Years and Still" on the Wednesday, July 31, 2013 episode.  Rich claimed with perfect deadpan that I wrote the song for my pet parrot.  Of course, he retracted the statement and said I'd not soon forgive him.  Little did Rich know that I already have, but my cat most certainly does not forgive him.  She's terribly upset that I must have a delicious pet parrot hidden somewhere in the house (she doesn't really get deadpan humor).  Thanks a lot, Rich.  Now I've gotta sleep with one eye open!  (Do check out their show- it's quite enjoyable!)
