20th Anniversary Edition :: The Story Behind the Name Flower Duet

Flower Tool :: Music Playlists for Making Floral Designs

I am putting our flower tool rec­om­men­da­tion first in this newslet­ter since we are cel­e­brat­ing 20 years of Flower Duet! Yay! Here is the sto­ry behind our busi­ness name!

In col­lege, I was a dee­jay for both of my local pub­lic radio sta­tions. One was a clas­si­cal sta­tion and NPR mem­ber sta­tion (WMRA) where I was offered the job because I could pro­nounce all the Euro­pean com­pos­er names with a prop­er accent (thanks to years of lis­ten­ing to my par­ents’ clas­si­cal music albums on vinyl). I loved play­ing the clas­si­cal music, but also shar­ing the air­waves with Scott Simon dur­ing Week­end Edi­tion Sat­ur­day. It was my love for pub­lic radio that turned me onto the music I walked down the aisle to for my wed­ding and was the inspi­ra­tion for our name — Flower Duet. One of our local NPR sta­tions, KCRW, used to play the Flower Duet dur­ing pledge dri­ves to inspire lis­ten­ers to donate at the Angel lev­el. The song is from Léo Delibes opera, Lak­mé.  I loved this song! It wasn’t until I was lis­ten­ing to anoth­er of the fan­tas­tic pub­lic radio sta­tions in Los Ange­les, KUSC, when I found out the name of this famous song. The Flower Duet! Here it is…I am sure you may remem­ber it from old British Air­ways com­mer­cials, too.
