After over five years of creating a show full of “kid-friendly music for everyone,” I will be moving on to explore new things to create and adventures to have. But you’ll still be able to listen to past episodes of Young at Heart on the Young at Heart Radio SoundCloud, and hear Talking Tunes, Artist SongBites and Artist Interviews on www.youngatheartradio.org.
I will never forget that first day at WTMD when my band Milkshake was invited by Sam Sessa to perform a concert for families on a Saturday morning. That was the start of what would become the very successful Saturday Morning Tunes family-friendly live music series. It also inspired an idea I had for a radio show for families called Young at Heart.
In honor of this last show, I’ve gathered music from my favorite kid-friendly artists, the very first Talking Tunes from Brian Simms and Tom Moon, a new Artist SongBite, and a Notes from the Playground. It was impossible to play all the artists I’ve come to love and share with you over the years, so I went to the Interviews page of Young at Heart on WTMD.org and picked songs from artists I’ve chatted with over the years.
Thanks for listening!
