My guest this time is veteran singer/songwriter Robert Morgan Fisher. Robert is a singer, guitarist, composer and author. His album NOTES FOR A NOVEL (2012) rose to the top of the folk charts where it remained for almost two years. His song, “Don’t You Wanna Go to Mars?” was named Hollywood Music in Media Folk Song of the Year for 2012 and is currently winging its way to the red planet on board the Maven Rocket. JPL uses the song to wake the Mars Rover. Two of his songs, “Jester King” and “We’ll Buy a Flag,” went to #1 on the Neil Young Living with War Songs of Our Times chart.
