A Farmer's Rap

During our annual spring meeting and training session with the Capital Press staff, Spokane-based reporter Scott A. Yates treated his coworkers to a rap song he wrote about farmer's and agriculture. I won't spoil it by telling you too much about it. This is one of those things you really have to experience for yourself.

You can check it out here on our podcast site.

Thanks for sharing Scott.

Scott launched into his rap near the end of our meeting, just after the reporters had all been equipped with new digital audio recorders. So the reporters got a chance to try out their new toys and capture the rap on, um, well, not tape but... audio. I happened to have the digital recorder we've been using for our podcasts there too, so now you all get to share in one of the more lighthearted moments of our conference. However, be forewarned, the language in the rap is more PG-13 than G. But that's shouldn't scare off too many farmers or ranchers.

I am kicking myself a little though. If only we had captured the rap on video. It could have been the first ever Capital Press music video.

Oh well, live and learn, as they say.
