Taking Off with Flite Brite

Any time we can capture the energy of our friend Ben McDougal it's well worth the effort to wrangle him into the studio. Today we're focusing on his new product FliteBrite!

While on vacation on beautiful Anna Maria Island we ran into, for the second year, Dr. James Rappold who "holds court" at the Island Coffee Haus.
