ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"SEMI FAME: The Truck Route to Broadway" is an original musical comedy written by Andy Gallagher (music & lyrics) and Mike Kolar (book), from which these five songs are taken.

Set in 1984 along the open highway and its diners, it centers on Pete ("This Country Runs on Diesel"), a long-haul trucker with a voice of gold who dreams of the Broadway stage. At the urging of no-nonsense diner owner Margie ("Broadway") (and her hapless drunk cook Carl), Pete reluctantly follows his dreams. Along the way he meets Dan ("Writing on the Wall"), a hitchhiking former child star of Hollywood looking for a simpler life, among other characters of the road. As they drive to New York, Pete teaches Dan the finer points of the trucker lifestyle. When they reach New York, Dan takes over trucking while Pete embarks on an entirely new adventure in The Big Apple where he grapples with new friends, new drugs, and his own fleeting success ("When I Was a Lad," "Life on the Highway").
