Pockets on Podcast: OWTK Kid's Monthly Podcast 

Next thing I knew, I fell behind on a few things. Over the next few days I'm just going to post about the fun things that have been happening lately: featured podcasts, interviews, reviews...these have been exciting days my friends. 

I was so delighted to be included in Jeff Bogle's podcast, The OWTK Radio show:

Pockets on the Radio: Hilltown Family Variety Show 

This was exciting news: I was included in this really lovely radio show by fellow Children's artist Alex Mitnick.

Alex guest DJ'd the Hilltown Family Variety Show for WXOJ (103.3 FM in Valley Free Radio Northampton, MA.) It was an honor to be included in a playlist with The Beatles, Bob Marley, Joanie Leeds, Bari Koral and other amazing artists I love. You can check out this wonderfully love-themed show following the link below.

Pockets Mention: Cooper & Kid 

It's a really great time to be a kid. There's such a wonderful selection of kids music today that's fun for all audiences, and is still sophisticated enough for adults. I had the honor of being included in this list of Jazz and Blues for Kids: Old Sounds for Young Ears, along with Jennifer Gasoi and Oran Etkin

Take a trip back to the gilded age with Lucy Kalantari who approximates the roaring 20′s on the ukulele with extremely impressive results.

Pockets Review: Monty Guy Blog 

Participating in this Grammy adventure has certainly put me out there in the open, and people are listening. In this wonderful blog post by Monty Guy, he mentions how much he can relate to this album from a Dad and brother perspective. Yes, dear friend, there's so much joy in being that caretaker and watching that little person grow. Thank you for this. A million thanks.
This collection of 'feel good' songs reminded this fan that listening to good music is a wonderful experience of fun, fulfillment, and delight.

Pockets Mention: Out With Kids on FB  

It's always a nice feeling when people listen to the work you've done and leave with the feeling you intended them to part with. That's a job done. Thank you to Jeff at Out With The Kids.
Today just went from good to great because new musical discovery JUST HAPPENED, kids. Thank you for emailing me, Lucy Kalantari! You had me at "ditties with a 1920s flair about the wonders of love" and with that artwork. I mean, look at that album art! The music is everything you'd hoped it would be based on those two pieces of data. Go listen and be joyful!
