    Episode 10: On My Way Home, an Immigrant's Lament

    Episode 10: On My Way Home, an Immigrant's Lament

    On My Way Home - An Immigrant’s Lament is a newly released song written, produced and performed by Peter Link. The issues of immigration today are as perplexing a problem as many of the most challenging issues that we, as the human race, face.  Why? Because at the heart of the Immigration problem lies one of our fundamental truths or principles that we all must live by — the Golden Rule. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
    The song is one man’s story of his journey as an Immigrant to America. The song was also made into a music video by videographer, Skye Malone.  In this episode Peter both discusses the evolution of the song and also interviews Skye detailing his creative process in the making of the video.

    Episode 8 Part 2: A Matter of Life and Death

    Episode 8 Part 2: A Matter of Life and Death

    A Matter Of Life and Death -- And The Probability of Life Eternal was written and assembled for all who, in one way or another, have been touched by the Pandemic of 2020.  That’s an audience of billions.  

    Through the grace of music, moving on is looked at through a myriad of lenses as an eventual door that we all will pass through at one time or another.  It is my hope that for those questioning life, in mourning, fearing for their own life or even wondering why we have all come to this, will find some solace from the enlightenment of these songs and the gentle nature of the content of this episode. 

    Episode 8 is presented in two parts.  Listeners should always start with Part 1, knowing that Part two brings us to a greater clarity on the subject of Life Eternal.

Scattershot Symphony!

You’ve done it again, Peter Link! Thank you for decades of inspiration.

What a neat concept!

The way the music and the commentary compliment each other is seem less. Listening to music is one thing, but heading the stories that inspire the music makes for a unique experience

Great Podcast

Peter has managed to find the perfect balance between commentary and sharing music. I cannot wait for more episodes to be released
