A Broad at Home 

Letter from A. Broad starts with a picture and a pang of the heart. From there it must beat into life, be penned as a letter and finally produced into a radio broadcast.

At the end of an extended time away in London, Murch wrote the first of her Letters from A. Broad. Though she has since returned to California she still travels frequently with her husband while producing a biweekly Letter From A. Broad.
Letter from A. Broad airs on kwmr.org during 'Good Morning West Marin,' hosted by Susan Deixler. Pete Horner www.mixmonkey.com composed and performed the theme music.
This is a 1200 word letter written and produced with sound effects suitable for a morning show or other general public affairs program. Times out at under 10 minutes.
The script will be available in the upload.
