Win a theme song for your community!

You have to admit, it would be pretty cool to have your own personal theme song. We're giving all the cities and towns in our listening area the chance to have just that. So whether you're in Revelstoke or in Falkland, get ready to make a pitch why your community should get its own theme song. Lowry Olson is a singer/songwriter from Gibsons, and he also runs a program called Theme Shop. He has agreed to write a theme song for one city or town in our listening area that really sells their pitch to him. To start his conversation with host Shelley Joyce, we hear some of the song he helped write for Vanderhoof.
