"You've got to hear Honky Tonk Confidential! They can tug your heart like Hank Sr. and rock like Hank Jr., and
sometimes they're funnier than the Capitol Steps with a twang! Put some sawdust on the floor, some chicken wire
around the stage, and this CD in the player as you suck on a longneck Bud." -- Jim Bohannon, Westwood One
OTHER NEWS : 3/29 Mike, Diana and Bob were on The Jim Bohannon Show , which airs on 300 stations nationwide every evening. Bob was a tad late (he's a new member of the exclusive Gridiron Club and had to attend a dress rehearsal), so Jim skillfully interviewed Mike and Diana, and they played a few tunes. Bob was a terrific interview, as always, talking about how he writes songs and how he wrote the four songs on Road Kill Stew.

You can see our performance here with the help of some wonderful local musicians, including Jonelle Mosser, who flew in from Nashville to sing one of Bob's songs, "From There to Here." Local journalist Dave Miller, of the Miller Report wrote, "One of the other highlights of the night was the singing of Mr. Schieffer. He has written some songs and he perfomed for the audience, what will be a smash hit, 'TV Anchorman'. It is absolutely hilarious...." We were big stars the next morning at the airport, where it seems everyone had watched the live broadcast on South Dakota Public TV the night before.
Diana and Mike wrote most of the rest of the songs on the CD. Lisa Ann Wright, the band's good friend and former Fabulette, originated and collaborated with Diana on " A Girl Named Dick." Lisa just released her own debut CD of original tunes, called Sweet Bye&Bye. Please visit her site at lisawrightsongs.com and buy her CD - it's terrific!
Here is the list of songs on the CD. You can buy the album on our Store page. We also have some short clips of four of the songs -- just click and play the mp3 files.
