Music for Art of Gracious Living

I'm so excited to learn this morning that I have permission to use Tino Izzo's music for the Art of Gracious Living Podcasts. Chacra Music has given me permission to use a bit of the music as a signature for the podcasts. The cut I will be using initially is "Elusive Memories" from the "Foreign Skies" CD.

This was an incredibly popular CD when I worked at Radio Kansas and I have loved having a copy of it. "Elusive Memories" is the Art of Gracious Living in sound, so I'm thrilled to have permission to use it. They are being most generous.

When I started thinking about music for the podcast, this was the first CD that came to mind. I ran to the kitchen and got it out of the CD player and popped it into the computer. It took only about 12 seconds to realize that this particular cut was perfect.

I had grown very attached to the idea of using it, so I'm tickled they have given permission. I realize many people who do podcasts just use music without permission, but I did not want to abuse the rights of the artist or his record company.

I will be posting additional information about the music, and a link to their website will become a permanent part of this page, but I wanted to share the good news right away.
