Promo spot recorded...

I'm very excited about the Cafe Vaquera promo spot that Elizabeth and I recorded yesterday in the secret KMUN production studio upstairs at the Tillicum House. We mixed up some music from Lisa and Her Kin's "Jane's Place," with some copy read by "ONE TAKE JANE." The spot will be played during other shows like Crossroads and/or the daily folk offerings, to promote listenership to Cafe Vaquera and cross-pollinate listener interest. See you on the radio! CJ...
