Live in San Diego
February 24, 2011 |
I have 2 young boys( 6&9) who really would love to see your show live in San Diego. We listen and laugh @ the show on the radio and want to confirm that the show would be appropriate for them live.
I think they'd love it, Selise. Drop me a line and I'll get them seats on stage and that way they can see Fred Newman close up as he does the dolphins steering the submarine past the humpback whales and firing the sausage pizzas over the volcano (thereby cooking them) and into the speeding car chased by coyotes. And they can observe Peter Johnson doing paradiddles on the drums as the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band strikes up the Bebopareebop theme. Appropriate??? Appropriateness has been a lifelong goal of mine. And nine is the perfect age for a Prairie Home listener. Snorts and honks and explosions a-plenty.
