The Fids and Kamily Awards Are Here! The Fids and Kamily Awards Are Here!

OK, they were here yesterday, but it's been a busy weekend, and I'm just now getting around to spreading the word a little bit wider. That's right, the Fids and Kamily Awards for 2009 were announced yesterday, highlighting the best music of the year for kids and families as voted on by about 2 dozen folks who listen to more kids music than, well, just about anybody. Anyway, you can go see the full list of 11 winners and 12 honorable mentions or the other 42 albums also receiving votes.

The Top 11 albums are listed after the jump. Many thanks to the judges and especially Gwyneth and Bill who along with me coordinated this year's poll...
