I enjoyed chatting with John Linnell, who with bandmate John Flansburgh, make up the creative force of They Might Be Giants. Besides releasing over 30 albums for adults over years, the band has created 5 totally enjoyable CDs for kids. We talked about what it’s like making music for a younger audience, recording his son Henry and friend Desi for “Letter Not Letter,” touring Borders, making commercials for Dunkin Donuts and music for various projects like Malcolm in the Middle, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Higglytown Heroes and the animated movie Coraline, among other things. Enjoy!
