Tom Wopat joins host Robin Milling to talk about his new CD, I’ve Got Your Number; a cool collection of classic standards, with renditions of artists like Bruce Springsteen (The Meeting Across The River) and James Taylor (Secret of Life); interpreted with his own panache and style. It’s a big band feel with an orchestra that swings; evoking images of the Mad Men era.
Growing up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, Tom tells Robin how he pursued his passion for singing in between milking cows, football practice, and rehearsing for the high school musical. Coming to NYC he discovered a shortage of leading men on the Broadway musical stage and quickly took his place. Who can forget him going toe to toe with Bernadette Peters in Annie Get Your Gun. These days however, he doesn't see much of a future in musicals.
Tom’s not singing the blues with plenty of projects on his plate including a Christmas album collaborating with The Dukes of Hazzards co-star John Schneider, with whom he maintains a brotherly friendship. He envisions duets with John accompanied by a horn section swinging your favorite yuletide classics; possibly recording a rendition of Baby It’s Cold Outside.
Tom's also working on a double vinyl album of I’ve Got Your Number which he describes, ‘one side will be the party record, the up-tempo songs and one will be the bedroom record, the red wine record with the slow songs.’
There is no slowing down for Tom, who at 61 says he still feels like 16. He’ll be touring more dates in the fall for I’ve Got Your Number, performing on stage as the sheriff in A Trip To Bountiful and has an ABC Family television film Lovestruck:The Musical, out in April.

It was announced today that Tom Brady will be suspended 4 games for his role in "DEFLATE GATE". What a disgrace!! Come on folks, stuff like this is always going on in sports but because it is Tom Brady and the Patriots this is getting blown way of of proportion. Tune in Thursday to hear me rant about how Tom Brady a got 4 game suspension and yet Ray Rices intitial suspension (pre-video) was for 2 games. The NFL hit the team (Patriots) hard with loss of picks and a montetary fine, but the real loss maybe to Tom Brady's image. Call in and tell me if you think this hurts Tom or Not.

Tom Caufield is a contemplative guitarist with an uncommonly melodic style, and though his music shares traits with ambient music, one still walks away humming identifiable melodies that float in an effortless dream-stream, built into traditional verse-chorus-bridge structures. “I grew up on the popular rock, pop, folk and soul of the times,” says Caufield of his musical boyhood, “so even when I make contemplative mood music, I can’t help but infuse it with a strong melodic storyline.” That’s good news for listeners who love relaxing music and memorable hooks.
