Welcome to cold weather time! :)
I used to love cold weather but as I get older I do appreciate the warmth of the sun a bit more :)
Exciting things happening! This week I had my first airplay on a local radio station..WAGY FM!
The DJ, Pat, is a friend who drops by the Farmer's Market quite often when I play. He heard me singing my song "The Crochet Blues" one time and liked it.
Well, we just had a grand opening in our city of a new Hobby Lobby store and my song mentions Hobby Lobby (and my yarn addiction!). So Pat asked if he could play it on the radio!
This was a first for me and I was so excited, jumping up and down! It was a very cool experience to hear my name and the name of a song I wrote being introduced on the radio and then to hear it being played! I had friends texting and calling saying , "I heard you on the radio!"
Something that I have had on my bucket list but never expected to happen :)
It is just a funny little song but I hope it brought a smile to faces and laughter :)
I will include a link to the recording under the Music section of my website if you want to hear it. It was also my first attempt at recording with digital equipment. I have a long way to go and a lot to learn but that is the exciting part...there is always something to learn! So just know it isn't "professionally" recorded...just me at home, figuring things out :)
Mentioning recording, if anyone wants to support me going into the studio to "do it right" you can leave a donation in my TIP JAR which is on the main page :) No pressure...but if you do. then when I release the CD, your name will be on it as a sponsor as a token of appreciation:)
I have enough songs written for three full CDs now!
My son is getting into creating music as well...a totally different style of music but really creative~! I may share some of his music here as well if he is willing:)
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving season!!!
With music and joy and gratitude,
