"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 10/11/08

This week I took over for Neil just a bit before Ages 3 and Up! normally starts, which afforded me the opportunity to play some grown up music. Here’s what I played:

Ornette Coleman– “Endless”- Tomorrow Is the Question!
Charlie Parker/Miles Davis– “Now’s The Time”- Birdsongs
Asao Kikuchi– “Kula Botanical Gardens”- v/a Childish Music
Thurston Moore/Warren DeFever– “Roots”- Root
My Bloody Valentine– “Don’t Ask Why”- Glider

The Moore/Defever and My Bloody Valentine tracks bled into the kids’ hour (oops!), so you get to hear some of them below. Here’s what was played on Ages 3 and Up!:

Elizabeth Mitchell– “If You Listen”- You Are My Little Bird
Me 3– “Tulip”- The Thin King
Tiny Tim– “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”- Laugh In
Brian Vogan– “That’s How a Pumpkin Grows”- Little Songs
Recess Monkey– “Wolf Man”- Tabby Road
The Poppy Family– “Shadows On My Wall”- A Good Thing Lost
Ralph Bell– “Here We Go!”- Great Ghost Stories
The Tastebuds– “?” (Halloween Song)- Yummyfun Kooking Halloween Episode
Rasputina– “A Skeleton Bang”- v/a Colours Are Brighter
Smoosh– “The Quack”- She Like Electric
Eyeball Skeleton– “Spooky Mummy Case”- #1
Supernova– “Monsta”- Supernova
Various– “The Haunted House”- Thrilling Chilling Sounds of the Haunted House
The Spider Monkey Noodles– “Casper The Friendly Ghost”- Demo
Christopher Casson– “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”- v/a Fuzzy Felt Folk
Vienna State Opera Chorus– “Humming Chorus” from Puccini’s Madame Butterfly- Pavarotti’s Opera Made Easy: Favorite Operas for Children
Dean Jones– “Bygones”- Nappers Delight
P:ano– “Sunny”- v/a For The Kids Three

Highlights from this week’s show included songs about gardening- tulips, in particular, but also pumpkins- spooky, creepy Halloweeny tunes and a teensy bit of opera. I played new music from Me3, whose new album The Thin King gets a GLOWING recommendation from yours truly, and Yummyfun Kooking’s house band, The Tastebuds.
(An interesting musical sidenote on Yummyfun: Yummy Clare, the show’s hostess, used to be in a band with Beck. She helped film and produce the video for “Loser.”)
