Everyone’s Invited – An Interview on Goober Kids Radio!

Goober Kids RadioThe current episode of Goober Kids Radio with Trevor is entirely dedicated to an interview with me about the Jungle Gym Jam, our new album, and how we got started and what inspires us. I give some acoustic performances and Trevor spins some of our tracks.

At age 13, Trevor is a highly skilled radio host, multimedia wiz (He designed the opening title animation and closing credits for the Cool Rockin’ Daddy Video Show!) and kindie rocker in his own right with The Zing Zangs. He actively engages the kindie community doing Skype chats to collaborate on songwriting and ideas to advance public awareness and excitement about music for kids and families.

Win mechandise from the Jungle Gym Jam store!Trevor’s also doing a giveaway of our CD along with other merchandise from our store! Check out the Goober Kids Radio Contests page for a chance to win the album, a tie-dye T-shirt, beach ball and tambourine in a gift basket.

Say, Who’s That Man with the Moustache?

Jason Didner donning his 'moustache' and playing a solo on The Zing Zangs' Moustaches song for the kid in all of us.It’s not every day that you get an e-mail from Canada asking you to play a guitar solo on a song about ‘Moustaches’ (Canadian spelling) by two 13-year-old whiz-kids! When I heard the song, its sense of humour (as long as we’re sticking with Canadian spellings), I knew the guitar solo had to have a laughing, witty tone to it as well. The wah-wah pedal adds a great laugh or cry to a soloing guitar; just ask Steve Vai or Eric Clapton, so I added that element to my solo; the first time I had done so since “Instant Love (Just Add Water)” back in ’03.

Check out the video here:

Notice my “serious” face? After a few takes when I was smiling, my grin kept loosening up the fake mustache, so I had to keep a straight face (until of course I start making guitar solo faces at the end!) It was a great surprise to see my New Jersey kindie friend Marc Bazerman of Baze and His Silly Friends show up with a mustache with his boys in matching mustaches and air guitar moves.

The Zing Zangs, the kinde duo that created this video, is co-fronted by Trevor from Goober Kids Radio, a great Internet radio station dedicated to children’s entertainment featuring music, storytelling and interviews.
