EDITOR'S NOTE: I like this. "Postcard from the Road" and want to say thanks to Lisa Dollinger and Tino Cochino for sending us this press info about Kanye's event.
I want to share the following "Postcard from the Road" from Tino Cochino, Host of YEA Networks' nationally syndicated show Tino Cochino Radio, the fastest-growing personality-driven radio show in the country.
Tino Cochino Radio was launched to stations nationwide in mid-March by YEA Networks, which quickly signed on 25 affiliates for the next generation audio brand – including more than 50% of the 25 largest Hispanic markets in the U.S. Hosted by Tino Cochino and newly-named co-host Jackie Hollywood, Tino Cochino Radio provides Rhythmic and CHR stations with an innovative combination of topical and relatable on-air content, engaging, original video and social content, and a popular podcast.
Tino wrote the following after attending Kanye West's Album Listening Party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, last night, where Kanye debuted his eighth studio album, Ye:
"I’m on my way from L.A. to Kanye West’s Album Listening Party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After about a 3-hour flight, we land in Jackson Hole…right next to a flock of private planes. We enter Grand Teton National Park, the views are amazing! Then I thought…there's going to be NO service here! THANK YOU for keeping us connected Ye! Everybody is out here. Lil Yachty was on our flight. Also in attendance: Def Jam Chief, Paul Rosenberg, Scooter Braun, Kim Kardashian West, Pusha T, Chris Rock, Jonah Hill, Fabolous, Kid Cudi, etc. The album is amazing. Everything. Lyrics, message, production. Thank you, Mr. West and the fam at Def Jam Records for the invitation and hospitality. I can't wait to share this experience on-air. Also, I gotta let you know there are a few more gems on my IG stories @TinoCochinoRadio, plus you get a little sneak at some of the tracks from “YE”."
Attached are photos of Tino Cochino taken at Kanye West's Album Listening Party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Photos feature Tino with Jonah Hill, Chris Rock, Kim Kardashian West, and Kanye West.
