Kids Commute - Spider Snack Week! Thursday

Jan 17, 2019

Spider Snack Week continues on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio! It’s been a fun week as we shrink down to bug size and witness the adventures of a spider trying to snag a tasty snack. This week we listen to “The Spider’s Feast” -  a ballet by French composer Albert Roussel.

Our story so far has taken us from the spider building its web, a poor butterfly getting stuck, and a battle between our spider and some mantises fighting over fruit worms. Today, we’ll listen to music for mayflies. Mayflies have an incredibly short life - usually a day or less! Today’s music is the soundtrack to a mayfly hatching and having a little dance before meeting its fate.
