Kids Commute - Randomizer Week! Tuesday

May 21, 2019

It’s another random day in Randomizer Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio.  Our theme this week is that we have no theme! Only great music that is fun to listen to, but doesn’t quite fit into a weekly theme.  Yesterday, we listened to, “The Typewriter,” written by Leroy Anderson about a device that was once essential for many people, but has largely been replaced by computers.  Today, we go in an entirely different direction, and listen to, “Uh-Oh,” from “A Little Nightmare Music,” composed by P.D.Q. Bach, otherwise known as Peter Schickele. Mr. Schickele is known for his musical sense of humor, and in today’s musical selection, he humorously writes about a musical lie that’s been told for quite some time.  Kate Botello will tell you all about it before we listen. After we hear, “Uh-Oh,” we’ll give you the first hint for the random Kids Commute Quizlet. Once you get the correct answer, we’ll send you a Kids Commute Prize Pack. We’re glad you’ve joined us for Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio.
