This is Chuck Redden, I own and operate radio station's KWJM and KMBS in Monroe, La.
I am indeed the author and creator of the Chocolateville parody song and also the "New Battle Of New Orleans" heard on Walton and Johnson, and other radio stations around the state.

A 'tamer' Ray Stevens version of that song which I also wrote for Country Radio is shipping to radio this week and debuting on the "Jeff Foxworthy Countdown"

Prior to this I also was the creator and writer of "Trial #3" about the Edwin Edwards Trial which was popular in New Orleans in 2000.

My affiliations are with BMI and Curb records/Nashville

Thanks for you interest.
