We’ve got an Artist Interview this morning – I’ll be chatting with John Linnell who with his bandmate John Flansburgh, is the creative force behind They Might Be Giants. The band has release five CDs for kids and families and created the music for Higglytown Heroes, Micky Mouse Club and the scary animated film Coraline. Their theme song for Malcom in the Middle won them their first Grammy award. We’ve also got new kindie music from Randy Kaplan and Renee & Friends.

Enjoy, and please email me at youngatheart@wtmd.org with any comments or song suggestions.
