I’m so excited to share this hour-long show that I created for XM Radio on the making of Mind of My Own. I tried my best to channel Mr. Rogers and Ira Glass, two of my favorite storytellers in the world. Over the course of an hour, I take the listeners onto the streets of San Francisco, to Haight Ashbury to interview some interesting musicians who played on the cd, and down to Ocean Beach to listen to the waves and pay homage to the great Jacques Cousteau.
I also talk about the song I sang with the Mates of State, “Place in Your Heart,” and interview a bunch of kids about toys they hold dear to their hearts – the things they say are precious and often hysterical. Finally, for the song “To Be,” I talk to parents and grandparents about lessons they have learned from their kids – the observations they make are beautiful and profound (I have a hard time listening to this with dry eyes).
The entire show is free to listen to and available for streaming anytime on your computer and iPhones / smartphones. Hope you and your kids enjoy listening to it on your next road trip or lazy Sunday afternoon! xo f xo
