Ready for some great, beautiful, funny, and thoughtful music? Josh Lovelace from NEEDTOBREATHE has just released his first kids and family record called ‘Young Folk’. It was so great to hear the stories behind some of the songs from Josh. Josh collaborated with some incredible artists on this record like Ben Rector and Sharon and Bram. You must check him out. I also couldn’t resist asking him about life on the road with a touring band while balancing being a caring and involved parent. Stay tuned all the way to the end of the episode for Josh’s song ‘A Bear In The Woods’. It is an instant classic.
Rebecca Dehovitz is my friend. She is a talented educator, avid reader, and reformed picky eater! She knows about all kinds of incredible good stuff for kids and families that you may not know about. This was such a fun conversation to learn all about what Rebecca was into at various stages of her life. She asked me a few questions too!
Randy & Dave have had so much success in the music industry, that it just makes sense that the same would apply in the kids music industry. They are writing some of the catchiest and wittiest songs that you’ll ever hear. Make sure to check out their album ‘Life on a Trampoline’, and stay tuned all the way until the end of the show to hear their song ‘Enjoy It While You Can’.
100 Episodes! Thanks to everyone who’s been with me since the very beginning. On episode 100 we welcome back Good Stuff favorites like Dr. Eric and Uncle D and the long overdue return of 4+1. All of this is topped off with the return of the incredible Laurie Berkner talking about her new remix album. Be sure to check out her remixed version of ‘Monster Boogie’ at the end of the show. Thanks for listening, 100 episodes!!!
Jodi Norgaard and Kara Thom from Go! Go! Sports Girls have created some unique and creative sports themed dolls and accompanying stories for girls (or anyone) who love sports. They encourage young athletes to “be fierce and sparkle” as well as the ingenious hashtag #athleteisthenewprincess. It was great to hear how the idea came to be as well as where the dolls have taken Jodi and Kara (ie. The White House!). These dolls make great holiday gifts… if you know what I’m saying.
