Schaghticoke Gets Their Very Own Theme Song: Your Town Thursday [AUDIO][GALLERY]

So many towns to cover-so little time.  I avoided this one like the plague.  Don’t get me wrong-I love the town, but I couldn’t think of anything that rhymes with Schaghticoke!  But a couple of very persistent listeners made me take the challenge, and now I’m happy that they did! 

Seriously, I have to thank Chrissy and Shaugne Templeton along with Maureen Fink for continuing to ask me in no uncertain terms “Where’s the darn song??.  So I finally locked myself into the Sean and Richie “wacky room” with the recording equipment, my trusty keyboard and pot of coffee and got to work.

I have to say that these nice people did a lot of the footwork for me.  They even picked out the song that I should parody!  They went with Brad Paisley’s “American Saturday Nite”.  Here’s the original in case you are not familiar.

And now, without further adieu, I present a slightly different version for all you “Schaghticokers

The Templeton’s were also kind enough to send photos of the town!  (Boy, you guys make me look good here!)  Thanks much!

Thanks again for all the info!  Cheers to your town!  And if you have a town you’d like to put “on the map’, musically speaking, leave me some info and I’ll get on that.  It’s free, courtesy of the Sean and Richie Show
