Here’s the story… Author Stacey L. L. Couch contacts Ian Mott and Greg Harpel of the radio show “Montezuma Mixtape” about reading excerpts of her book Gracious Wild. She drives two hours to Cortez, CO to meet them for lunch at The Farm Bistro and they all walk a block over to KSJD Dryland Community Radio Station which is located in an old bank. All three of them pack into the recording studio hosted in the vault of the bank. Stacey reads 15 minutes of excerpts to an audience consisting of Ian and Greg and drives home. The guys get to work on selecting music and blending it in with her reading. The show airs on January 17th and 19th, 2014. Then it is posted on demand. The result… an opportunity for you to hear the story in the author’s voice AND to experience the emotion in music. Many listeners commented that hearing Stacey read the book helped them understand the story on a deeper level than just reading the book to themselves. Others were caught up with the music and how well it accentuated the story. We’re excited to see what you think…
