After a short hiatus we are back in the studio this week featuring two major changes! First, we will be releasing episodes multiple days each week as we are turning segments into episodes. The second change is our brand new segment "Community Spotlight"! While we like talking real estate and LOVE checking out the best places for food and cocktails for "The Local Flavor" we wanted to start featuring community organizations that help make Sarasota an even better place to live!
We are kicking off our first episode for Community Spotlight with the first in a series of episodes to promote a great local event benefiting the Arthritis Foundation - THE JINGLE BELL RUN!
