"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 9/27/08

Y’know… Sometimes things just don’t go your way. It’s not necessarily that they go badly, just unexpectedly. This week on Ages 3 and Up! things DIDN’T go as planned. And, thanks to the joy and spontaineity of live broadcasting, you get to hear it all! So, click the player below to hear me show up late after having car trouble, lose a stack of CD’s and discipline Kid-O on air (note the “I’m gonna kill you” Mom voice that scared the bjeezus out of the Blue Yodel guy). Despite all that, we had a BLAST! A totally fun 50 minutes improvising, doing the “Rabbit Tango” and singing about astronauts. Enjoy!

Dean Jones, of Dog On Fleas put out this incredible, laid back album last year. Nappers Delight is full of WONDERFUL songs about hermit crabs and walking… has some beautifully mutilated traditional numbers, is replete with mbira and electronics AND features a guest vocal from Elizabeth Mitchell. Absolutely one of my new favorites!
