Welcome To The Neighborhood: A Mister Rogers Tribute Podcast

On Monday November 11th, I’ll be releasing a special bonus edition of my show, Welcome To The Neighborhood: A Mister Rogers Tribute Podcast.

The episode will be a bit longer than our usual scripted format and will focus on the new album, Thank You Mister Rogers: Music and Memories.

I had a wonderful time making the show with Grammy wining producer Dennis Scott, Jon Secada, Tom Bergeron, Jaci Velasquez, and Lee Greenwood.

Tune in Monday at noon to hear reimagined music from Fred Rogers and conversations with some new friends and neighbors.

The concert will start at 7:30PM on February 22nd.

Groups who buy 5 tickets and get one free.

Expect a full evening of music where I’ll be playing the entire new album live. We will also be giving away signed copies of Thunder on CD and on Vinyl to ticket holders whose names are drawn.

New Album Update, Podcast News, and Escape To The Lake 2018

New Album Update

I wanted to give you a quick update about the progress of the new album. Two months ago I started crowdfunding to raise money to pay for the recording costs for the new album.

Total costs to pay for the remaining unpaid studio time, mixing, and mastering of the album came to $10,200.

Last night the crowdfunding campaign ended. All total we’ve raised $5360, which means I’ll be paying $4840 out of pocket to pay for recording costs.

So where does that leave us?

I’ve decided to go ahead with making the album in spite of being short of funds. So many of you have given so generously and have shown such enthusiasm for this new music that I feel like there is no other choice.

It might take a little longer to make the album than I originally though since the money I was raising did not cover the costs of printing the CD. Distributing, marketing, or any other if the many expenses involved in making then album. This makes the financial burden much greater, but I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to get the album made.

Thank you to all of who who have helped by spreading the word about the new album. Thank you to all of you who have donated money so generously and sacrificially. Thank you for all to all of you who pre-ordered the album.

From here we will trust God to provide and I’ll keep working to bring it to you.

Podcast News

I’ve been working very hard to bring some great guests to my podcast, Voices In My Head.

In the past year I’ve welcomed amazing like William Willimon, Tim Madigan, Shane Claiborne, Stephen Tobolowsky, Science Mike McHargue, Andrew Peterson, and many more.

We’ve had conversations on music, Worship, Ethics, Sexual and Racial Equality, Islam, Judaism, and much more. The podcast listener community keeps growing and the feedback I’ve been getting has been very encouraging. I just wanted to take a moment to recommend that you give the show a listen and leave some feedback on iTunes. I think you will be glad that you did.
