I just heard about this show yesterday and holy hell is it awesome! It's a local children's show in the Washington D.C. area (out of my range unfortunately) where they have all sorts of alternative music folks on it constantly. They have the Evens playing an original song about VOWELS. That's Ian McKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi) singing a CHILDREN'S SONG about VOWELS. They have Henry Rollins arguing with a puppet. They have Ted Leo playing "Wheels on the Bus" before playing one of his own songs. They have interviews with George Clinton where they ask him "so where did you park the mothership?", they interview the band the Presidents of the United States of America which is...predictable but still fun. I wish this show existed when I was a kid. Hell, I wish I could get it on my tv NOW, but it's still only on public broadcasting down in DC from what I know. I hope this show takes off cause it would be such a nice change of pace to the stupid fluff they have kids growing up on nowadays.

I was surprised that they used a Hush Puppy puppet in that Scissor Sisters thing. Are those characters free game now that the lady that owned them died?

You have to tape all the episodes and send me copies of them now.

I wish I could tape it, but I don't have a working VCR in my house; all I have is my PS2 to watch dvds on.
