Recording the Local Routes Theme | Belle & the Band


WFSU-TV sought out Tallahassee\’s Belle and the Band to write and record a theme song for our new Local Routes show. Lead singer Kathryn Belle Long wrote the song over a weekend, and here we see the rest of the band working out the instrumentation at Log Cabin Studio. You also see some of the regional imagery evoked by the lyrics, including highlights from Local Routes first few episodes.

Rob Diaz de Villegas is a senior producer for television at WFSU Public Media, covering outdoors and ecology. After years of producing the music program OutLoud, Rob found himself in a salt marsh with a camera, and found a new professional calling as well. That project, the National Science Foundation funded "In the Grass, On the Reef," spawned the award-winning WFSU Ecology Blog. Now in its tenth year, the Ecology Blog recently wrapped its most ambitious endeavor, the EcoCitizen Project.

Rob is married with two young sons, who make a pretty fantastic adventure squad.
