"The place where three really IS a magic number!" A radio program for kids and families that airs Saturdays from 9-10 AM EST on WRFL, 88.1 FM in Lexington KY.

Playlist 8/9/08

Is anyone else out there a first born? Was anyone else kinda MAD when their parents came home with the new baby??? Well, I was. S’alright, though… I’m over it now, and am really quite fond of my sister. But, back in “the day” I’m pretty sure I shared the sentiments expressed in both the songs we started with this week on Ages 3 and Up! Yeah, a new baby’s kind of exciting, but there were definitely days when I wished my parents had brought home a puppy instead. Anyhoo….

So, this week we started with The Happy Flowers, who were screaming about childhood angst before WRFL was even conceived. For more information about them, you can click here. I kind of expected some Un-Happy Flowers to call about them, but instead we got a very happy caller, who said he hadn’t heard them in years, and was glad we were playing them on WRFL‘s kids’ show. Go figure.

We told some terrible jokes and played songs about going back to school, including a FABULOUS song about starting kindergarten, by The Not-Its! We also got back to the classics with an excerpt from Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite, and heard new music from Danielle Sansone (review coming later this week….maybe.)
