Tangent Sunset - Sky Blue Heaven "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on January 23, 2013

Here's a song I wrote years ago that I recently refined called "Sky Blue Heaven." As I told Twirl Radio host Mike Lidskin, it's a song that uncovers hypocrisy and points to more open minded thinking about how we view the world. The song taps into picturesque imagery about "heaven" being used as a propaganda device. I figure it's as relevant now as when I wrote it back in the eighties.

This live acoustic guitar and vocal performance is the first public release of the song. It's also the first time I ever performed one of my own songs on the radio before. After over twenty years of working in commercial radio my first on air musical performance turns out to be on public radio, which I think is refreshing. I have not yet recorded a studio version.
