Vinyl Goodness Needs Your Help

It’s another blatant attempt at good ol’ fashioned cross-promotion huckstering from us for this week’s Song of the Weak!!! We’d like to ask you to consider donating to a Kickstarter fundraiser to help make a record.

Bubbles in the Think Tank is one our favorite radio shows here at Chandler Travis HQ, and not […]

Offbeat – Chandler Travis On the Honeymoon and After

Chandler Travis is on tour. This is not at all unusual, as he has been a traveling “writer/song-singer” (his words) for the better part of 30 years, with varying levels of success.
