To me, it’s still exciting (and frightening at the same time) to send a package filled with precious cds all around the world. We’ve been collecting albums for the Reggae Steady Ska Album Package over a whole year, some have been signed by the artists, which makes the package even more unique.
Now so many things can happen once they have been delivered to the post office. In the worst case, the cds get lost on their way. Or they arrive heavily damaged or incomplete. Or, which would also be a downer, they are sent back because the receiver couldn’t be found. Professional mail order shops have to deal with this day-in and day-out. But that’s not what we are. We send a gift as friends.
That’s why it’s a thrill to see that our annual album package with more then 20 cds has arrived safely again, this time after a trip from Europe to Latin America. The main prize of the Reggae Steady Ska big give away from 2013, went from Cologne (Germany) to Santiago (Chile).
Thanks to Rodrigo for sending over photos, from Santiago in autumn, where the leaves have started falling from the trees.
Here are some words from Rodrigo:
“… While i write this message i’m listening and enjoying this precious music. Another thing, while i was opening the box in my home, my family was all surprised about this big (for me) gift from Reggae Steady Ska. So they said to me What a Lucky Rodrigo! :-)”
Thanks to all labels and bands that made this give away possible.
