Tom Shipley grew up in Bedford, Ohio as the son of the principal of Bedford High School. Just a few years later he ended up on the infamous “Enemies List” of then President Richard Nixon.
Funny how one song can change your life, especially when that song was “One Toke Over The Line“, which he recorded with his partner Mike Brewer.
He recently talked to Bill Louis of WNCX 98.5. Listen to the great stories about growing up in Greater Cleveland, that song, and how it helped change the world.
Brewer And Shipley will be playing at The Kent Stage on August 26th. Tickets are on sale now at www.thekentstage.com
Bill Louis can be heard on WNCX 98.5 weekdays 10am-3pm
