Dear Steve and Audie,
Thanks for the copy of your new collection
of Jewish music, "Shalom Aleichem". In honor of Yom
Kippur, we played four cuts off of it today and had very positive
response from Jewish and other listeners to our "memories"
station, WOCN-FM on Cape Cod. Best wishes for success in the future
with this fine music!

Dear Steve and Audie:
Just a note of thanks for your album Island
Dance. Here at 'JIB, we are
inundated daily with soundalikes - it's a real job to get something
stands out from the crowd.
In NAC RADIO, "World Beat" music is something that is
aggresively marketed, but still too extreme for our core audience
coming from a previously easy listening formatted station. With
Dance, I'm thrilled to find a variety of pieces offering great
rhythms which are savvy enough for our new listeners (primarily
years) without alienating the core who are just becoming acquainted
We are happy to add to our playlist the following cuts: "Allesandra
Marie", "Blue Pearl", and "Lullaby for Marie
Andre." My personal favorites
includes "Kids" and "Sunrise".
Thanks for making my job a little easier.

Tired of schlocky shopping mall holiday music?
Here, finally is a gem of an
album that wears well on otherwise worn-out ears.
Superb flutist Steve Tapper and sensitive guitarist Audie Bridges
have combined classical and jazz styles to create an enjoyable
Christmas and Hannukah classics, plus some well-crafted originals
WQRC listeners' reaction to this Simple Gifts CD have been simply
amazing: all asking where to get it. We've gotten good calls on
"Joy to the
World", "White Christmas", and "Jingle Bells."
After the holidays, we plan to add "Song for Debra"
to our playlist
along with some tracks from the first Tapper and Bridges CD, Island
This is instrumental music with a thoughtful foreground quality
you to listen again and again.

I've just had the great pleasure of previewing
Simple Gifts by Steve Tapper
and Audie Bridges. A holiday feast for the ears and...it will
play all year
round. I know it will get lots of air here.

Thanks for sending your two CDs. The jazz guys
ate 'em up' we used "Kids" to
intro our kids show; and we've put "Simple Gifts" in
our holiday materials
box. We know good stuff when we hear it!
