HMHS TV 015 - Frank Dicker Live

It's my huge pleasure to present home songwriter supreme Frank Dicker live from the Music Tree in Morgan Hill. Frank has appeared on the show before and it was great to step out and see him. He claimed to be nervous and making mistakes but I didn't notice any and I'll bet you can't either. Frank appears here performing his original songs accompanied by his son.

iTunes/iPod users can download one video from iTunes but there are 3 at youtube.
