My Songs/Album


john d - 4_panel_wallet_2_disc OLYou’ll never hear these titles in Grammy conversations, especially since my own dear grammy is long gone.  But ever since The Beatles invaded our shores as I turned 12,  I dreamed of writing songs for an album (in those vinyl days) of my own.

The songs began sneaking out (and mostly getting thrown away) through my adulthood.  The album took 50 years, but in 2014 I finally cut the appropriately named the appropriately-named Better Late Than Never.  It contains 11 original songs plus an old Celtic ballad I used to propose to my wife Jude many years ago.    I’m still working on this page, but for now you can hear the songs on my SoundCloud link:   And if you like them you can order it from CDbaby at or send me a check for $15 (which includes shipping anywhere in the US) to me at 5322 Norma Road, McFarland, WI 53558.  If you’d like it signed, just let me know!

    I would like to visit with you about performing at the Oconomowoc Area Senior Center, possibly March 7 or April 4 for a luncheon.
    Is there anywhere I can listen to a song or something that you perform. I would also like to know how much you charge. They gave me your article on the singing chicken and it looks intriguing!!
