Thanks to all the nice people who called me this week, and to those who listened but didn’t call. Oddly, I played almost exactly what I intended to play on Ages 3 and Up!– it rarely happens. Included were songs about unruly dogs, FreeKY Fest previews, songs about ice cream, a couple of songs about kites and a couple of songs about the alphabet.
One of the songs about ice cream was from Frances England’s new release, Family Tree, which I really really like. If you dug Lisa Loeb and Elizabeth Mitchell’s work on Catch the Moon, or are into the folky-pop thing, then you’ll probably be as enamoured of this record as I.
