For years comedian, songwriter and philosopher, Tim Wilson has been joining us on the air and in that time has treated us to a number of classic tunes such as My Brother In-Law, I Could Be Wrong and Church League Softball Fistfight. And though he's one of our most frequent guests, it's still an adventure every time he stops by, thanks in part to his uncanny ability to find a story to go along with any topic of conversation. But as a warning, if you're even talking to Tim, try to avoid mentioning The Bible, NASCAR, credit cards or Jimmy Carter. Along with writing comedy tunes, Tim is also author having written a book, Happy New Year - ted, about serial killer Ted Bundy. He's also just released a new digital album available for download at Amazon called Caffeine, Wired, Nervous and Pale.
Comedian Sean Morey has been a friend of the BOB&TOM show for longer than we can remember and his songs have been popping up on our albums since the 80's. But we're not the only ones that enjoy his music; he recently placed first and third in the comedy division of the International Songwriting Contest with his tunes "Dear Santa" and "The A.D.D. Song." Along with those two favorites, Morey is famous for his other tunes "The Man Song," "The Woman Song," "The Man That Doesn't Exist" and "Dickin' Around at Work."
