This week’s show features my first phone interview for Young At Heart, and I’m excited to share my chat with STEVEN STEVEN – Steve Burns (formerly host of Blues Clues) and Steven Drozd (The Flaming Lips). These two very creative guys have come together to make a new album for kids and everyone called Foreverywhere. I’ll be posting the full interview on the Young At Heart page, but the shorter radio version you’ll hear on this week’s show features the epic title track, which is just over 10 minutes long! But I’m sure kids will enjoy the story-telling magic-ness of Steve Burns’ voice, and the atmospheric music from Steven Drozd.
Also in this show, we’ll hear music from the Monkees. I loved the Monkees growing up, and when you think about how the four actor musicians played fictional Beatles wannabees on a TV show, and actually became a real band in doing so, it’s pretty amazing. Here’s “Daydream Believer”.
We’ll also hear a song off Sonia De Los Santos’ new debut CD Mi Viejo. Some listeners might know Sonia from her work with Dan Zanes and Friends.
Have some kid-friendly songs you’d like to hear on Young At Heart? Email me here at WTMD: YoungAtHeart@wtmd.org. I’d love to hear from you!
Until next week,
