Written by on September 30, 2020

We are so excited to add the lovely and talented, Maren Hirsch to the BTD Radio Partner family. Maren has been a very visible supporter of BTD Radio and a fan of T Dawn’s music. She has gone the extra mile and we are delighted to have her on board with us. We look forward to the coming years as we work closely and grow our partnership. Welcome aboard Maren!

Maren has written a book about my favorite state, California.

The story of The Trumpet Player is about a young lady born in the former East German Republic called DDR. The society behind Berlin was full of repressions against free minds. “If you’re not a communist, you are an enemy of our country” that was the opinion of the regime.

Kitty, the hero of the story, loves music especially the music of Satchmo. He was her hero and she decided to become a trumpet player. She dreamed of living in San Francisco with all its glorious beauty. In Germany, San Francisco is like a “Sehnsuchtort”, a place we love and want to be forever. For Kitty there was a price to pay.

Maren takes you on a journey as you live through Kitties struggles, her ups/downs to make it to her biggest dream ever and that is…

Well, we will just leave it there. You will have to read the book to find out.
