We asked new dad, Zach Baeker, to guest "DJ" for his new son Chester. Baeker is an ardent music fan and we expected him to share all the jams that Ches would have to hear one day.

Baeker is the founder of a company that makes Brazilian spirits, a cachaça called Espirito XVI and a vodka called Boteco. Check them out at espiritoxvi.com and botecovodka.com.
