This Island Earth
Sunday September 28th, 2014 with PeterB
The babies and kids show! Kid oriented music from around the galaxy and beyond. Welcome Reuben Allidina!

<-- Disclaimer: This photo is not Reuben, Alnoor, Karen, or even me, or any other baby real or imagined! It could maybe be some future T.I.E. Collective member though. No babies, or microphones, were harmed in the taking of this photo. ;^) Most joyfully, fellow This Island Earth Collective member Alnoor and wife Karen have a first child as of earlier this week!! WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME to this weird yet wonderful planet Reuben Sultanali Allidina!! In honour, we'll feature a pile of lullabies, kids music, weird stuff my wife and I played for ours when they were young, and things our parents introduced us to also. And vaguely related theme wandering. Stay tuned to have some nap time... Then wake up and wiggle your bum-bums!! PeterB hosts. The usual big juicy tracks and long juicy sets ensue. And a share of dubious transitions too. Fasten your seat belts, and properly attach your car-seats, especially if you are a sleep deprived parent.
