Go Mo Go 198

Sunday, May 6th, 2012








Hey All,  I’m working on a tune for and PDHC here in Columbus. Their President Tim Welsh asked me to consider writing something for them at the Catholic Men’s Conference  this year. I recruited Neal Havener to help me with the bridge to the song and off I went.

It is a work in progress with lyrics yet to be written but here it is as it stands today.

The tune is supposed to help a runner or walker in a marathon or 5K or whatever to set a pace. They walk or run to raise money for the Single Mothers who are looking to be able to keep their children rather than abort them. It is a very worthy cause and takes care of those who are here and alive now so please visit their site and pledge to support Tim Welsh as he runs for the cause.

You can make a difference. Let me know what you think!

Oswald And The Herringbones

Oswald And The Herringbones “What Does This Mean?”

Thursday, October 14th, 2010


Thursday, September 30th, 2010 LOGO.jpg
Hello UA class of 1979 and all friends of the band. We are working hard to pull together a great show for you in January. Right now I’m posting lots of old “Oswald And The Herringbones Live” shows in case you are not familiar with our music. You can find the tunes and download them free at the blue links on the right side of this page —->

Anything that says OATH is also Oswald And The Herringbones. I’ll be posting about 8 or nine more “Live” gigs soon. Each one is a little different and even though we repeat many of the tunes from show to show, there are usually a few new or stray ones which are not on each set list.

Please remember these are all old “board mixes” from shows in the Big Eighties, which means they are not professionally produced they were just taped (yes, on cassettes, remember those?) directly off the sound board at some of our live concerts.

I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we had fun playing them back then. The January Reunion Gig will be posted as soon as we know the venue.

God bless you all, and thanks for thinking of us!

Thanks to all of you who came out to the show October 26th. We had a great time. It was most gratifying to see so many old friends and make so many new ones! The Barberettes were there, Steve’s Daughter jammed on Dishwasher Blues and many great memories were made. Steve says we raised a good deal of funds for Phil Henry so thank you all for you contributions to his help. Please visit too.

There were a lot of questions about if we will play out more. It was very cool that people at interested enough to ask. The answer is yes if Neal is game. So everyone write him ( email and tell him that you would like him to play more for you and the rest will be history as they say. I suppose it may take a while as Tom is off to Russia for a few weeks. (It’s a spy thing or something like that!) Please pray for his safe return to us. I’ll try to post any future gigs here if you all swing Neal!

Ok well thanks again!

God bless you all!

P.S. There are Herringbone Songs posted on the blue link on the right side of this page. Feel free to download them and enjoy. There are only a few. I’ll post more in time. These are mp3s of the board tapes from some of our old shows so don’t expect miracles but they are fun and good enough for most ipods and desktop computer listeners.

A Special Benefit
Phil Henry

Phil’s Story
On Thursday, July 12, 2007, Phil Henry was painting a house in German Village.  While painting a dormer on the third story, the ladder from which Phil was painting slid, causing Phil to fall onto the first floor roof and onto the ground, landing on his head and back. Unfortunately, the impact of the fall has left damage to his spinal cord, causing paralysis from the lower chest and below. Oswald And The Herringbones are happy to officially reunite for the first time in 12 years, in order to help Phil with his medical and financial needs! You can help by joining us for this evening of old friends, fun and music. Also, please visit:

Also visit for great deals on very Catholic artists!

God’s Peace to you all!

St. Michaels Teen Radio Show # 10

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

Here is the latest podcast from the teens and young adults of St. Michaels Church. I didn’t get to edit last week’s show due to a total computer meltdown at my home. So here is this week’s show and I’ll get to last week’s show when I get time. This show features the music of Station 14 the band from our parish Mass For Youth. I was originally a member of the band when it was called “Dirk and the Steel Toed Boots” some 7 years ago back when friends were friends etc.

The band recorded these songs on their CD and you can get the whole CD at or email them at I hope you like the songs they chose to record and we also thank the original writers of the tunes in this podcast.

God bless you all!

St. Michael’s Teen Radio Show #7

Saturday, July 8th, 2006

Ok! Really this was show #2 which was not edited until this week so now it is technically show#7. But the numbers are out of order. So if you notice minor level changes and other small mistakes in the production which heretofore have been getting better with each show, it’s due to this actually being an earlier show. Confused yet??? I know I am.

So sit back and give a listen. This show features the songs of Relient K, Sarah Hart, Tom Booth, and the late but great Rich Mullins.

Please do go out and purchase the CDs by the various artists as they are all excellent. Most can be found at the website.
