Ep. 5: Molly Ledford, Actress, Puppet Enthusiast

Transient

Molly Ledford is about to go on a great adventure.

A great space puppet musical adventure, that is.

In this episode, I talk with the guitarist/songwriter for the South Carolina band Lunch Money about the world premiere of the musical Planet Hopping that the band has created with  Belle et Bête, a South Carolina-based puppetry duo.  If you are at all near the Columbia, South Carolina area this weekend (Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15 & 16), do attend, but even if you can't be, listen and find out more about the musical and about stretching in new areas can help you out in the old areas.

Episode 4: Brady Rymer, Bassist in the Laurie Berkner Band

This episode is more kindie-focused than most here at MOOG.  It features a conversation with Brady Rymer, a successful kindie musician in his own right leading Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could, but since earlier this year also the bass player in The Laurie Berkner Band.  We talk about what it's like to sometimes play second fiddle after many years playing first, learning from Laurie, and how to balance both sides of that musical life.

Hello, iTunes!

With much better luck than I had in my initial attempt to get the Kindie Week in Review podcast up into iTunes, the feed for this podcast got picked up pretty quickly.  So, if you go to this link, you'll be automagically directed to the iTunes Store page for the podcast.  Please subscribe and rate and review the podcast, no matter what your opinion -- subscriptions and ratings help the podcast's visibility in iTunes generally.

And if you use something besides Apple's Podcasts app (such as, say, iTunes on your computer) you can always enter this link direct into your podcasting app: http://zooglobble.com/my-other-other-gig?format=rss

Thanks for listening.  At the moment, this won't be quite weekly in nature, but I've got interviews lined up, so be patient -- more MOOG-y goodness is on its way.
