Small House of Everything

Loren Owens and Wally Brine are radio personalities in Boston.  The Loren and Wally Morning Show has been a top-rated show on WROR for many years and along they way they've had a host of interesting "regulars."  One of the most popular has been Tom Doyle, whose song parodies -- "Townie Tunes" -- can make you choke while the milk comes spurting out of your nostrils.

     It's been sixteen years since I moved away from the Boston area so I wasn't familiar with Tom Doyle.  That changed when I got a CD of his songs for Christmas.  Here are a few of the songs.  Of course, most of these tunes are about Boston and its environs, but there's also a visit with the Men from Maine with their unique take on "animal husbandry" and the not-so-true story "behind" Gordon Lightfoot's The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald
