Long time radio buddy Trent Rentsch donated a much-needed mixing board to our studio setup that allows for phone line recording. Trent works with these phenomenal people: Krash Creative Solutions
Another long time radio buddy Bill Latour (yes – THAT Bill Latour!) donated his phone patch setup which made plugging the phone into the mixer a whole lot easier. Check him out here: Wikipedia: Bill Latour [See, we weren’t kidding. He IS THAT Latour].
Ritsu Katsumata: Extraordinarily talented violinist and friend who graciously gave permission to use her music as our podcast theme song. Her website is linked on our “About Us” page, and here it is again anyhow: http://www.ritsu.com
