A word about the wonderful Irish kids’ song I couldn’t pronounce: It comes from this CD/book combo (pictured right). Quince from The Speks, whose “Saint Patrick’s Day” song we played, called from Ireland to let me know that the name of the song is pronounced “Kay Vade Mare,” and the CD/book is pronounced “Googley Goog.” The title of the song we heard means “How Many Fingers?”- it’s a counting song! It turns out that The Speks are friends with the people who put out Gugalai’ Gug!- small world, indeed!
Another word about Rock N’ Romp: It happens Saturday, March 20th at Al’s Bar in Lexington, Ky. Al’s Bar is located on the corner of Sixth and Limestone. Snow Monster! will be there with Tula and The Swells, and you MUST have a child with you in order to be admitted. Like we said on the show, kidnapping is strongly discouraged. If you decide to bring a child with you who is not your own, make sure you have permission from his or her parents. 🙂
And a final word related to Gustafer Yellowgold month: Head on over and read about the Gustafer Yellowgold Art Gallery Contest ! Now and through the end of the month, you can upload your own Gustafer Yellowgold creations (like the AWESOME Lite Brite pic at your left) to Gustafer’s art gallery. A winner will be selected randomly to win a Gustafer Yellowgold “boneless action figure.” I’m pretty sure we have one of these, and they are swell- far better than action figures with bones. You can see Gustafer’s gallery here.
