Well, now that I've got such a spiffy new logo, I think it's time to have something else shiny to go with it.
How about a new radio station?
That's right, I'm happy to announce a new kids music radio station, Zooglobble Radio, the motto for which is "Kids Music Worth Airing!" (Get it? Get it? "Kids music worth airing"? Yeah, OK, I was amused.)
I've been wanting to get a little more of the great kids music that crosses my desk (or inbox) out into the world, and this is my solution. While terrrestrial radio and podcasts were both potential options for me, I've decided to start an internet radio station. I've been broadcasting for a week or two now, and I'm getting the hang of it, negotiating the playlist rules of operating an internet radio station and the limits of storage. I'm also trying to get the hang of listening to CDs with an ear towards songs just as much as albums as well as getting used to converting CDs into a digital format (which I've not had to do). All of which goes to explain why I've got a lot of different songs available right now, but not nearly as many as I hope to have over time.
Anyway, I don't claim to have the background of Amy from Hip Young Parent or Gwyneth and her Gooney Bird Kids station. And maybe one day I'll start doing live shows like live radio standbys Kathy from Kids Corner, Belinda and Hova from Greasy Kid Stuff, or Bill from Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child -- not to mention a bunch of other radio stations. (The barriers to entry of satellite radio are significant, so I think Sirius-XM's Kids Place Live is safe from further satellite radio competition. And Lisa, I just don't have the time to write all those permission letters...)
You can see when they're airing here. I do plan on updating them semi-regularly, so it's not like you'll have to listen to the same songs for months on end. Finally, if you have questions or comments or suggestions, do let me know. I'm looking forward to doing this -- hope you're looking forward to listening to this.
