Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem

Dec 17

We’ve played a bunch from the band’s new kids’ CD, Ranky Tanky.  They came by the studio this week to record an in-studio we’ll air on January 2 (a week before they’re playing a benefit (taking place at First Churches) for Nonotuck Preschool).  Here’s a sneak preview, a great version of the Funky Meters’ “They All Ask’d For You.”  And check out the Drumship Enterprise — as you’ll hear on the show, it includes a cardboard box, a naugahyde suitcase, and all sorts of metal cans!
