Ukulele Lately Ep. 14: Special Shout-Out (Chad Weldy) & Special Guest (Glenda Weldy)

This week’s podcast took a time-out from our usual routine of an artist highlight and also from wrapping up my part 2 answer regarding recording software, for blog subscriber Malc. This was a family-oriented podcast, and by that I mean it was focused on two members of my family: Chad Weldy (who turns 40 today) and Glenda Weldy (whom I interviewed…well, I’m sure there was Q/A somewhere in the midst of all that laughter).

Shout-out was given to: my niece Lauren (Chad’s daughter) for doing my opening; my brother Chad (Happy Birthday!).

Ukulele Lately Ep. 12: Two Original Songs & Bushman “Contest”?

This week’s episode was delayed until today for a special reason: it’s my brother’s birthday! Two original songs were played: one regarding our girls’ basketball team winning state for the fourth year in a row; and one as a gift for my brother, Lance. The Bushman Ukulele Contest was referenced again…this time not in such a good context.  Do some investigative reporting and let me know what you find out about them. 😉

Shout-out was all about my brother, Lance, today…He’s 37! Happy birthday, Lancey! I love you!
