Story

Early on in the partnership, Tom and I were looking for outlets where we could get songs on the radio. At the time there was a local country radio station on Long Island broadcasting on the 740 AM frequency, so we decided to write them a theme song and get the tracks produced in Nashville. The song was fun, the tracks were great, Tom's vocal was super but by the time we had the song ready to pitch the radio station changed formats. We were left to look around the country for country radio stations that happened to broadcast on the 740 frequency. I do believe that no writing is wasted writing and it was definitely a learning experience. Who knows, we still have the tracks so it might yet morph into another song.
