  • Locals: The CD is available at Turn It Up Records (Northampton, Brattleboro, and Montague Center) and at Cup & Top Cafe (Florence Center)!

Third, other stuff:

  • Songs from the CD have been getting play on lots of family radio shows, including our show, Sirius/XM, Ages 3 and Up!, and so on.  Do you do a show and haven’t gotten the CD yet?  Send me a note (show at sparetherock dot com) and we’ll hook you up.
  • On a related note, Sirius/XM’s Kids’ Place Live (I won’t be doing the wacky capitalization, nope) recorded what sounds like an amazing Rumpus Room in-studio with Uncle Rock, Dog on Fleas, Recess Monkey, and Grenadilla.  It’ll air the weekend after the CD comes out; check out some pictures here from Out With the Kids.
  • There aren’t a lot of reviews out yet, but Out With the Kids sure liked it.
  • Zooglobble has a limited-time preview of the Lunch Money song.  Go check it out!

That’s all for now.  Please — please! — tell your friends and family about the CD, send them a link to, and buy/order the CD today!
