Richard Lynch Remembers Steel Guitar Legend, Pays Tribute To DJs On New Recording

“The Lord has been, so good to him
He helped him do, just what he wanted to do
He didn’t always know, but God always knew
The hearts he’d melt, by being on the radio
You know the souls he touched, from that DJ chair
He meant so much to people everywhere
Just a humble man, doing what he loved to do
And after 50 years, he’s gonna play his final tune”
–Richard Lynch, “Radio Friend”

When an artist like singer-songwriter Richard Lynch writes a song, you can bet it is inspired by true events, real people, family, faith and country. The Waynesville, OH country artist has released tributes to our military (“Love Tattoo” with Ronnie McDowell); his family (“Grandpappy,” “Daddy’s Guitar”); and his friend, Doug Supernaw (“Supernaw”). On January 28th, 2022, Richard Lynch will release “Radio Friend,” a never-before-released single, written as a tribute to two of Lynch’s pals.

Lynch explains, “We had a very good family friend that recently passed away. Ray “Chubby” Howard was a lifelong friend of my dad’s, and a member of the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame. Chubby played all over the world, and he was a great supporter of my music. When he became a DJ on a local station here in Ohio, he continued to promote my songs, and I’m eternally grateful. ‘Radio Friend’ is my way of saying ‘Thanks’ to Chubby. I was honored to have it played at his funeral.”

He continues, “The inspiration for writing the song actually came from another friend and DJ on Real Roots Radio, Gary Cohn. When Gary retired, he made the comment on his last show, ‘ if I don’t see you on the air, I will see you in the air.’ Anthony Williams and I penned this song as a tribute to Gary and all of the incredible DJs that have played my music over the years. You are all my ‘Radio Friends.”

“Radio Friend” is planned for inclusion on the next Richard Lynch album, due later this year. A video tribute featuring photos of Chubby Howard, Gary Cohn and Richard Lynch is available at Pre-sale starts on January 14th.

Kate Stewart’s New single “The Game” is a royal flush

Kate Stewart

Kate Stewart presents a new single called “The Game,” which displays the realm of not getting played by anyone. This track “The Game” reflects on an opportunity to show power and get back to yourself when you’ve fallen astray. Lyrically saying how it feels to know exactly what you want when you want it. It’s all about playing your own game, one where you have control of the outcome and finding a more self-assured version of yourself, all the while having your own full house.

“The game is the game” is just something that I and all my friends have always said. Whenever I try to explain it to people they never understand, you just have to hear it in context to get it! However I thought it would make a really cool title for a song, and in this instance ‘The Game’ symbolizes not letting anything or anyone get in the way of you or what you’re trying to do. You just have to look forward and enjoy the ride, looking back will only hinder all the progress you’ve made. Don’t let anyone dull your shine, the games the game!” – KATE STEWART
