It is with great sadness that we mourn the untimely loss of producer-mixer Mike Shipley. He was instrumental in the creation of the last three Allan Thomas projects, as well as a good friend and mentor. Our condolences go out to his family today, and he will be greatly missed personally and professionally. Friends and fans are encouraged to post at the memorial site set up by Mike’s family.

Allan Thomas

A great musical moment as performed live on KKCR radio. Graham Nash joins Allan as he runs down a previously unrecorded song (at the time). Recorded LIVE off of the air.


In 2007 Allan Thomas was a guest on Millicent Cummings’ show on KKCR, Kauai’s popular pubic supported radio station. Allan talks story about his songs and history and features a rare cover song surprise at the end. Also played during the show is a rare demo version of “Making up for lost time.”
