Latest Podcast Episode Now Live: “Candle – A Love Story In Song”

Greetings Everyone!

The latest episode in my ongoing podcast series, “The Storyteller Almanac” is now live and online. You can find the podcast on the major podcast platforms such as Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and more. This particular episode is timely in that – back in July of 1985, I was asked to do something musical for two people that were about to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. This podcast episode tells the back story plus showcases the song I ended up writing and singing for them. Little did I know this song would become synonymous with me (Mike Thomas) and my music career. I guess I hit upon a more of a nerve than I planned on as lots of people constantly told me how they could relate to the tune in some manner or fashion.

The podcast can also be found on my main podcast page, www.StorytellerAlmanac.com. Please follow and/or subscribe to the podcast so as not to miss any future episodes.

New Podcast Episode – Released Early For Independence Day 2021: “Freedoms Wings”

Happy Independence Day Y’all !

This week’s episode of The Storyteller Almanac is being released early to coincide with July 4th / Independence Day 2021. The story is about a song I wrote and recorded back in 1991 – “Freedoms Wings” – for an album I did back then called, “Heritage.” Rather than explain it here, just tune in and listen to hear the whole story behind it all. There are some poignant ‘Americana’ audio clips inserted within the tune. The narration at the beginning of the piece is also something I wrote for the “Heritage” CD back in the day. That narration was done by an old friend – Donald MacCallum. Thank you Donald!

UPDATE: New Print Size Options Now Available In My Etsy Shop!

Greetings, Y’all! 😎

After some contemplating and a few inquiries I received regarding my fine art prints in my Etsy Shop, I’m giving the folks what they asked for. Translated, I’ve had requests for a smaller size on my hard copy prints. Up until now, I’ve only offered 8” X 10” prints mounted in an 11” X 14” white matte (with backing). The inquiries were whether or not there was a smaller size available. Henceforth, I’m now offering a 5” X 7” print in an 8” X 10” white matte (with backing). Prices are as follows:

8” X 10” print / 11” X 14” white matte w/ backing – $25.00 (FREE SHIPPING)

5” X 7” print / 8” X 10” white matte w/ backing – $20.00 (FREE SHIPPING)

As a side note, almost any size can be had. Just contact me and I’ll quote a price etc… SPOILER ALERT: The large size prints I do have to outsource, therefore, these will run quite a bit more than what I can offer for the aforementioned prints as I can create those in my studio.

Check it all out in my Etsy Shop.

That’s all for now neighbors. Thanks for stoppin’ by. Peace – Mike T.
