This week on Ages 3 and Up! we played songs about names, songs about games, songs for two of the four holidays being celebrated this week- President’s Day and Valentine’s Day, new music from Earthworm Ensemble, and the fantastic Tugboat Danny (not Tugboat Larry, like I said on the show).

The details:

Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals– “Hello”- Taxi
Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke– “Favorite Names”- Rise and Shine
Shirley Ellis– “The Name Game”-The Name Game
ScribbleMonster & His Pals– “The Song of Life”- Songs With No Character

The Galactic Heroes– “George Washington”- v/a Greasy Kid Stuff 3
Brian Vogan– “Happy Valentine’s Day”- Little Songs

Earthworm Ensemble– “We Are Birds”- Earthworm Ensemble

Ray Darby and Morris Surdin– “Tugboat Danny”- Kiddie Records Weekly 2009 (disc 2)
Frances England– “Tugboat”- Family Tree
Banjos for Babes– “Home Sweet Home”- Volume 1: Classic Children’s Songs

It seemed fitting this week to feature the latest compilation from Greasy Kid Stuff- what with the picture of George Washington bathing a gigantic rat, and all… The great song we played about General Washington by The Galactic Heroes appears on Greasy Kid Stuff 3, as does Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke’s “Favorite Names” (we played the song from their newly released Rise and Shine).

I’m really happy about having the chance to gush over Greasy Kid Stuff, because they are Ages 3 and Up!‘s heroes! For those of you who don’t know, Greasy Kid Stuff is a long running (15 years, I think?) radio program for kids, currently broadcasting from KNRK in Portland, Oregon. Everyone has influences, including radio shows and radio stations. In fact, WFMU, the radio station Greasy Kid Stuff originally broadcasted from, was influencial to the folks who established our happy home, WRFL. Though Greasy Kid Stuff is not the reason our show exists, they certainly have shaped what we’ve become, and so we send a gigantic shout out to them!

Happy President’s Day! Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have the best Chinese New Year ever, and have fun celebrating Mardi Gras! Be sure to tune in next week, as we’ll be playing nothing but jazz for kids in honor of the Fat Tuesday festivities.
