LIMITED & OUT OF PRINT
The highlight for this feature is actually Old Releases. For 11 years I had the distinct pleasure of curating music that featured the best in-the-moment music representing up-and-coming artists as well as some masters with their classics.
I get asked a lot about the CD samplers and recently came across a small stash of them. ONE of the rare volume 1 and a few of the rest that include Music samplers sent out to unveil the station with a narrated introduction. I’ve decided to make them available and clear out the closets. The pricing includes taxes and shipping to make it easy and goes to support staying connected with Smooth In Seattle. CD’s are available on a first come, first served basis. Thanks for the support.
