Song of the Summer Picnic

Song of the Summer TBD

2015 brought some big changes to TBTL. The show was picked up by the Infinite Guest podcasting network, enabling Andrew to quit his day job and devote himself to the show full-time.

In March things got really meta when Mike Frizzell and Christy Wise launched their own podcast devoted to TBTL - the Little Red Bandwagon

The annual TBTL-a-Thon was a success. Tens were able to snag some really great thank-you gifts, including stuffed Luke and Andrew dolls. You can't get the sweet thank-you gifts anymore, but please consider making a donation to support TBTL today!

In May, the Tens gathered at Safeco Field to watch the Mariners face off against the Cleveland Indians.

The annual Song of the Summer contest was not without controversy, but will culminate in another great picnic at the beautiful Chateau Ste Michelle winery in Woodinville, WA on August 19, 2015.
