A check in, 6/27/17

Hello there, Scoochers!

I wanted to write a note to you all, since I’ve fallen off on posting show notes every day. If you’re looking for the name of the song in the outro music, you can see it above, in the description under every show.

Amazing listener Stephanie is maintaining the Scoochers spotify playlist, if you want all the music in one place!

And if you’d like to join our Facebook group, where amazing discussions happen every day, search for “Radio Dispatch Scoochers” on Facebook.

Love to all of you as we catapult into summer!
