And to be a Noble Patron of the Arts...
(Hey, Shakespeare and Mozart sought patronage, too!)
Randy's new single, "On the Phone on the Toilet," is in the rotation at SiriusXM's Kids Place Live (ch.78)!
You can hear it now only at CD Baby. The song will be available on iTunes and everywhere else soon.
The narrator of "On the Phone on the Toilet" is a kid named Bob. His mom's always on her cell phone.
It bugs him. And that's putting it mildly. He thinks she's missing his entire childhood. But is she?
