So many things have happened in the last month or so, and especially this last week.
Last Friday, I dashed off a quick folk song satire called "Battle of the Bowling Green Massacre." On Saturday morning, I posted it live to Facebook, and it seems to have hit a nerve. Within 5 days it had over 106,000 views.
On Sunday, I did a phone interview with AC Smith in California for his podcast "Days That Start With a T". On Monday, I ran into the studio with my brother David and we recorded a studio version of the song for use on the podcast, and for sale on CD Baby and other platforms. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this song will be donated to the ACLU.

On Saturday, Feb. 18 I'll be launching my Indiegogo fundraising campaign which now includes two CDs, my originally planned "Only Love" CD, and, due to popular demand, a CD of satirical folk songs tentatively titled "Ballad of the Bowling Green Massacre and Other Alternative Folk Songs." I've enlisted my good friend, and former comedy and songwriting partner Darren Stephens to co-write the satirical songs with me.
And, on Saturday, you can hear me live on "Steve's Folk" in the 10:00 AM hour on WCSB, 89.3fm Cleveland.
Finally (for now), on Sunday, February 19, 7:00 PM EST, I'll be streaming a live concert for the Facebook group Harmony In Unison. It's a closed group, but all you have to do is go to the page and ask to join. There are over 10,600 members, and there's live music almost every night of the week.
Oh, and pitchers and catchers reported today. Can this month get any better?
