Now 12-28-16

Now Home…

I’m living in Rockford, IL where I’ve lived for 95% of my nearly 49 years.

This is the first time I’ve written down items for a “now” page on any of my many websites:

  1. creating a brand new website for my new radio show… see below
  2. adding new posts and content to my Hard Truths About Soft Skills blog
  3. relaunching my Conversations with Tom interview series
  4. continuing to curate and add new concert, landscape, and portrait photos to my photography website at 
  5. scheduling new concert shoots and music journalism gigs for 2017 to be published on
  6. continuing to work part-time as an on-air personality and talk show host/co-host at two different radio stations for Townsquare Media in Rockford
  7. recording, transcribing, and editing interviews done with me for my 2017 book titled “Escaping Suite Oblivion”

I’ll be travelling to Nashville the second week of January to photograph and video my longtime friend Mickey Joe in the recording studio as he puts some finishing touches on his latest country album working with Dolly Parton’s band leader and guitarist. Creating a visual record of these studio sessions for use in a documentary later once MJ is a huge country star… oh yes, it’s going to happen.

**I’m launching a brand new weekly talk radio show I’ve had in my mind for years. The first episode is debuting on January 7th, 2017 on 1440 WROK 7-9pm and all episodes will eventually be available on demand as podcasts and/or streams at – oh, the show is called Sound Matters: Music & Entertainment Talk with Tom Leu… I’m so stoked!

It’s been an eventful and productive 2016. I’m looking forward to 2017, but will not be making any resolutions because I believe in planning and accomplishing goals all year long, not just at the calendar flip.
