the best and worst a country has to offer

Sonic ID- Tuna Tail

Sonic IDs are playful audio vignettes that evoke a sense of place, convey an image, or reveal a character.  Usually broadcast with a station's call letters at the end, they sonically break up the programming of the day and surprise the listener.  This is about commercial fisherman Emory Johnson, in Martha's Vinyard.

Produced at the Transom Story Workshop, in Woods Hole, MA.
