Songs on Repeat: What we’re listening to over in elephantland.

elephant journal

Some of our staff this summer celebrating Waylon’s birthday in Boulder.


Our core staff is pretty small over in elephantland—small but mighty.

Some of us live in Boulder, Colorado, but most of us live elsewhere. We talk on Skype all day long to stay connected and to create a virtual workspace. We have several different Skype chats to keep us organized—my favorite is “The Water Cooler.” This is where we talk about everything but work. We share our favorite tunes and YouTube videos and make each other laugh—a lot.

A few weeks ago, I was reading “The Water Cooler” chat and it occurred to me that our staff has awesome taste in music. I felt inspired to create a new Facebook page called Elephant Radio and got our ele-staff to post songs, quotes and images to the page on a daily basis. (If inspired, “like” the page for a daily dose of eclectic tunes.)

So, in honor of “The Water Cooler” chat and our new Facebook page, I’ve decided to create a monthly blog listing our staff’s favorite music—the songs we’ve been playing on repeat and can’t get out of our heads. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Feel free to leave a comment below with your I-can’t-get-this-song-out-of-my-head tune and we might post it on our Elephant Radio page.
