Today’s show celebrates Spring, with songs about rainy days and the new season. We’ll also hear new music from Bears & Lions, Elizabeth Mitchell & Suni Paz and Falu’s Bazaar, who graces the Saturday Morning Tunes stage today. I’m really excited about this week’s Adult Kids OK GO. Not just because I am a super-fan of the band and their music, but I think kids would love much of what they do, too – especially their amazing usually-one-take videos. OK GO contributed to The Green Album, a wonderful compilation disc of Sesame Street songs by adult artists released in 2011. The band did the only video for the album, their version of “The Muppet Show Theme Song.” As with most of the videos by OK GO, this one is brilliant fun, especially with the inclusion of the muppets themselves. Today’s Talking Tunes is Rickie Lee Jones with her cover version of the Peter Pan classic “I Won’t Grow Up.” Enjoy!
