Tales by Tom

This podcast showcases the audio stories of Tom Cagley Sr.

Apr 20, 2014

Welcome to Tales By Tom. Today we continue with the fourth installment of  "Take It To Heart." In this series my father will make you cry, laugh, reflect and maybe even provoke you.

This podcast includes two new stories:

The old sawbuck. When my father died in 1979, he left me a dollar. I never saw it but I still have the $5 bill he’d given me in 1952.

Bourbon in the hot tub. We became friends over his store’s wine selection.  He gave me some good advice and ended up taking it himself.

New Book!  

Recently my father, Tom Cagley Sr published a new book titled, I Was Your Son: A Troubled Journey.  The book is a view into Tom Cagley Sr's soul.  When asked why should anyone read this book ?  He answered, "Because the end effect is restorative and invigorating and because everyone who’s ever had a father like this wants to believe there is a happy way out." 

A recent review stated it even more powerfully, "I received a package from Amazon today, it was your book. I started reading it and I absolutely could not put it down. You really poured your heart and soul into this and it really touched me. Thank you for sharing your journey."

Buy  "I Was Your Son: A Troubled Journey" on Amazon 

I encourage you to provide feedback on these stories or any of the earlier shorts by email at or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.
