Today’s show is a celebration of empowerment – the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. We’ve got songs about sticking up for one another, believing in yourself and being comfortable with who you are and what you can do to make your world a better place. Lots of great kindie music in today’s show.

Brian Simms and Tom Moon of the Milkshake Band will be here for another Talking Tunes – today’s tune is “I Was A Teenage Anarchist” by Against Me.

Enjoy, and as always, email me with comments or song ideas at youngatheart@wtmd.org.
