Album Notes
Jim Stricklan is a performing songwriter playing his songs throughout the southwest. Jim moved to Denver in the 70s and sang for years in the local coffee houses, clubs and concert halls before returning to Texas. He’s written hundreds of songs, toured the southwest, and released twenty albums to date—with a nationally charted single in 1986. His songs have won top honors from the Southern Songwriters Guild and Colorado Composers Classic. Jim has worked at many legendary radio stations, including KWKH in Shreveport, KLOL-FM in Houston and KVET-FM in Austin. Check out Jim's website www.frontroommusic.com for more about his many albums, books and more.

This—my 20th album--is a personal triumph for me. To reach my goal of creating a studio album of new songs, I enlisted the help of many talented friends… George Coyne—owner of Parrot Tracks Studio in Manchaca, Texas—and a fine guitarist in his own right. Doug Taylor played bass on all the tracks, sang on a few, and offered guidance. Doug also loaned me his beautiful Martin 000 guitar to record my acoustic tracks, while George worked his wizardry on the high-string guitar. One of the best drummers I’ve ever worked with—Kevin Hall—provided a smooth rhythmic lift to the music on Stay Tuned. Jamie Hilboldt, keyboardist extraordinaire, agreed to help with his rainbow of orchestral colorings, tasteful piano, and organ talents. All of these gentlemen were easily up to the task of playing a diverse bunch of songs... including, ballads, samba, folk, and jazz tunes…vocal and instrumental. Putting solo icing on the cake were my reliable horn-master pal Joey Colarusso, great Texas fiddler Richard Bowden, and always soulful instrumentalist friend Greg Lowry. While working at Denver’s KBRQ in the 80s, I became a serious fan of Chet Atkins, whose music I’d merely admired until then. Chet made three albums for Columbia that were very jazz-influenced, while still fitting into a sophisticated pop vein. My favorite was called Sails—an album I’ve probably listened to a hundred times. Another was Stay Tuned—which impressed me enough to borrow the title for this project. It perfectly represents the artistic sentiments relevant to both my lifetime careers—playing music and radio broadcasting. Some, no doubt, will understand the deeper meaning.
