Episode #134 – Like Father Like Son (Lou and Frank Gallo)

Episode #134 – Like Father Like Son (Lou and Frank Gallo)

Lou and Frank Gallo have both been making music for kids and families separately for many years. You can even that kids and family music is the family business! They’ve finally come together to make a record and it’s awesome! You may know Lou from Lou Gallo and the Very Hungry Band, and you may know Frank from Rolie Polie Guacamole

You may not know that, just in time for Father’s Day, that Lou and Frank teamed up to form a band called Like Father Like Son, and they just put out a brand new record called ‘Sun is a Star’. It was so great to talk to Lou and Frank about their relationship and what it was like to make music together. It was nice to hear a father and son who worked together and seemed to learn a lot about each other through the experience of making music. Happy Father’s Day to all the Good Stuff Dad’s!

Episode #133 – Falu

Episode #133 – Falu

Falu recently released her first family record called ‘Falu’s Bazaar’ and it is a treat! Falu and I dug into the music a bit as well as the significance of the languages she sings in. This record is rooted in tradition and I was so happy that Falu was willing to share so much with me. I think that you will agree that it was a great and educational experience and conversation. Passing tradition on is so important. Stay tuned all the way until the end of the show to hear Falu’s song ‘Hulululu Bus’.

Episode #132 – Scott Weaver

Episode #132 – Scott Weaver

Scott Weaver has created a replica of San Francisco that is as large as 5 refrigerators. What makes his creation spectacular is that it is made entirely out of toothpicks and has tracks on which ping pong balls can travel through his city. My family had the pleasure of meeting Scott at the Exploratorium in San Francisco where he told us about his work. We then continued the conversation for the podcast. You’re going to find Scott’s story incredible. From toothpicks to massive Christmas light displays, Scott has lived a life in which he has followed his passions and creativity. He is an inspiration and a really really good guy!
