  • Produced for WCAI's Sonic IDs
    (Part of a collaboration between Transom and Cowbird)

    Notes from Jay Allison

    One of our most interesting Sonic ID producers was Chelsea Merz. She made Sonics out of anything. For instance, she created little series, like "What's In Your Lunchbox?" She made good use of music. This particular Sonic became one of the inspirations for a series we called "Short Lists," a list of things that make you wonder what it's all about. A story with the title at the end. Check out a bunch more Short Lists at Make some yourself.
