Slingerlands Elementary Sings About Read Across America Day [AUDIO]

Once again, I experienced a 24-hour period where I couldn't wipe the smile off my face.  It happened right after I visited Slingerlands Elementary School. These kids love to read and SING - what a perfect fit for the Reading, Writing and Rhyming Tour.

Salem Elementary School Creates Anti-Bullying Parody Song With Richie [AUDIO] [GALLERY]

I had quite the experience today .  I might be smiling about this one for the next week!  I spent the better part of the day in a town that was vaguely reminiscent of my hometown - Salem, NY!   I actually had two very good reasons to go there!

Wow! You’re Exactly Like My Cat! [AUDIO] Original Song Parody

There's a fantastic new country song by Billy Currington.  You must know the one.  It's called "Like My Dog" , and basically asks the musical question to a significant other, "How come your not more like my dog?".  Well, I thought there was another animal that deserved equal time here!

Waterford NY Has A New Theme Song! Congrats! – Your Town Thursday [AUDIO]

I loved the participation from all the folks in Waterford.  It made writing even MORE fun than normal, and I appreciate it.  I even had a Facebook friend suggest the song to parody, and it turned out to be a great idea, even if it was a song from 1905!

Which Of The Current Candidates Has The Best Chance Against Obama?

Note: Please re-read that headline.  I'm not asking who you would necessarily vote for.  We try to stay non-partisan on our show.  I'm asking who you think on the Republican side has the best chance against the Barackster.  I think I have the answer, and I would like to do that musically if you don't mind (but again, I'm not taking sides)

Voorheesville Gets Their Own Theme Song: Your Town Thursday [AUDIO]

I had a rough start today on the air.  I attempted to perform this song live and it didn't work.  My "drummer" was not cooperating.  Long story.  So I went into the 'GNA Parody Room and cranked this out for you folks in Voorheesville (is that spelled right?)

Jefferson Elementary Gives Exercise Advice In Song: Readin’, Writin’ and Rhymin’ [AUDIO]

Early to bed, early to rise-exercise, exercise, exercise!  (I don't know if that was the original saying, but I tweaked it!)  Exercise has to begin with the young.  How young?  How about first graders?  Not only are they great exercisers, they're even better rhymers!

“Walking In Memphis” Revisited [AUDIO]

This is a sequel to my other blog about one of the funniest/most embarrassing things that has happened to me in a very long time.  I don't know if any of you have experienced this mix-up.  It actually ended up working to my advantage, oddly enough.  Let me tell you about it in song!

I’m Not At All Addicted To Words With Friends – Parody Song [AUDIO & VIDEO]

It's the new board game that's sweeping the nation.  I couldn't believe this, but my aunt and uncle asked me to play the other day!  I had no clue they had ever heard of it.  They're way cooler than I am!  But now I'm into it as well - however, I refuse to become hooked. Are you?

Time Is Marching On 2011: “Rhymin’Richie’s” Year In Review [VIDEO]

Out of all the rhyming I do in a given year, this little piece is always the most challenging, for some reason.  What events do you include in a year end song?
