"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 7/3/10

This week on Ages 3 and Up! we celebrated our nation’s independence with songs about birds. Specifically The Cuckoo, a bird that (it seems) only “goes ‘cuckoo’ on the fourth day of July,” and the American eagle! We also played great songs about parades, and had a SUPER special guest, our friend Jessi Fehrenbach of Lexington’s own March Madness Marching Band. That’s her in the picture above! We talked a bit about MMMB, the local Independence Day celebration, eagles and why they are a symbol of our nation’s freedom and yoga. And coffee, and how it is good.

Congratulations to the Theakston family! Their very young son was born the day before this episode aired. He has been listening to Ages 3 and Up! for months, in utero. We are SO pleased to be able to welcome him into the world, where he can hear all kinds of GREAT stuff in an entirely new way.
