Two Paper Town

In Denver today, sad news that one of our major newspapers, the Rocky Mountain News was shutting down. In hearing the news I remember hearing this same story and emotions expressed in a song, Two Paper Town by Steve Seskin.

I've gone back and listened to this song. Steve in 2007 wrote the story for today and if folks would have listened then... That to me is the essence of songwriting.

Thanks for turning me on to Steve Seskin's music. Yes, we all should listen to the true meaning of this song before its too late...

I wrote a song about the Rocky Mountain News dying. I worked at the Post a while back which I think informed the populist view of this song.
