THE LOST WAFFLE HOUSE SONGS
Since 1982 Waffle House has been making music on their jukeboxes through their own record label, Waffle Records.
I was asked to come on board in 1982 to help write and produce the songs along with singer-songwriter Mary Welch Rogers.
Together we collaborated on over 30 Waffle House songs. It was not an easy task as Waffle House wanted them to sound like real records and not commercials.
We would work through a list of ideas and themes which would then need to be approved by staff in the communications division.
Once a song made the cut it would be recorded and pressed on vinyl 45s, which would then make their way to the Waffle House jukeboxes.
There werehowever many Waffle House songs produced that did not make it to the jukebox. For various reasons they were put on hold or passed over and never released to the public…until now.
I thought Waffle House fans would enjoy hearing these lost songs that wereco-produced withmy close friend and collaborator Danny Jones along with a host of very talented people.
Some of the songs are completely produced. Others are still in various stages of completion but they are all fun to hear.
If you’re a Waffle House fan and like the Waffle House songs featured on the restaurant jukeboxes I think you’ll love hearing these never before released Waffle House songs too!
One thing is for sure…you won’t hear them on the jukebox or anywhere else but here.
Take a listen and let us know what you think!
