Transportation Nation Jingle: World Premiere!
Friday, January 27, 2012 - 03:41 PM
It's not often that Transportation Nation receives musical fan email. We're more used to getting missives from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics or press releases from elected officials. (Or emails from publicists asking "are you a SERIAL RELATIONSHIP KILLER? How to stop the sabotage!" or offering to teach us "how to winterize your dog" -- but that's another story.)
So we weren't sure what to expect when we got an email from a reader named John Fauller, who said he was a fan. And as a gift, he wrote, he had composed a jingle for TN. We opened the file with trepidation...and then were immediately delighted. Give it a listen, below. And John: THANK YOU! Hope your boss wasn't angry with you for being late to work!
