Early on, it was Tim’s funny music that got a lot of attention. His song, “I Wanna Kiss Her (But She Won’t Let Me),” was the first of Tim’s pieces to receive national radio exposure, on the legendary “Dr. Demento” show. Other songs followed, including “99 Dead Baboons,” “Get Drunk with Dignity,” and “Really Safe Sex.” His funny tunes have been heard on radio stations everywhere, as well as on Sirius XM and even the BBC.
In 1997, Tim released his first CD, “Sounds Like Fun!” By then he had become a regular guest on “The Bob & Tom Show.” For two years, Tim did a weekly segment on the show called “The One Minute Song,” which spawned two more CDs. Fast Forward to 2016. That’s when Tim’s fourth comedy album, “Love, Fish and Sausages,” was released. This latest CD contains 20 original comedy songs, backed by some great musicians. The 21st song on the album, “Vehicle Man,” is a parody of the 1970 hit “Vehicle.” The parody is not only done with permission, Tim actually sings this funny adaptation with Jim Peterik, the man who wrote the original and sang the lead on the “Ides of March” hit.
The book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Jokes, features a half-page of Tim’s advice on “How Not to Introduce a Joke,” as well as other select Cavanagh jokes. His book, Chicken Soup for the Vegetarian Soul, just went through its sixth printing. Tim firmly believes in printing them “one at a time.”
