This week Ages 3 and Up! was one of four children’s music programs in the United States to premiere a track from the highly anticipated, forthcoming, second album from The Not-Its! . We played “FANTASTIC,” a more developed version of a track we first heard on a demo they sent us back in August of 2008, some time before their first album was released. The song was formerly titled “My Favorite Person.” Love it! We played more songs along that line for all of our favorite people out there, including songs from Dan Zanes and Friends and Billy Kelly. We played “Caterpillar Caterpillar,” in honor of Eric Carle’s birthday, and a BUNCH of nonsense songs.

New music from The Pop Ups, PlaySoundz, Ralph and Ralph and Justin Roberts, as well. We promised we’d post Justin Roberts’ video for “Obsessed By Trucks,” so it is just below the list. What list????
