Kids Rule NPR’s WEEKEND EDITION

lisabadge

Hokey PokeyWeekend Edition went kid crazy yesterday, featuring an interview with Jerry Spinelli about his new book Hokey Pokey, (Random House; Listening Library), coming out this week, as well as one with Bob Dorough, the composer of Schoolhouse Rock‘s classic tunes.

I have Dorough to thank for getting me  through American Government finals with his “I’m Just a Bill.” It’s the the 40th anniversary of those Saturday morning shorts and classics like ”Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get Your Adverbs Here” and “Three Is A Magic Number” stand the test of time. Fortunately, they are still available on DVD (Walt Disney Video; B00005JKTY).
