Show Notes

I'm still excited about this one. Beloved children's entertainer (and straight-up Canadian music legend) Fred Penner was at the top of my unofficial 'dream' list of potential guests, and I finally got the chance to sit down with him. Fred is currently promoting his (excellent) 13th LP, Hear the Music, and we talked about the record, his remarkable 45+-year career, and more! Stay tuned 'til the end to hear a couple of live performances! Big thanks to UMFM 101.5 (which broadcasts this show) for giving me access to one of their studios for this episode. Unfortunately, we had a mic issue, so although Fred came through loud and clear, the audio for some of my questions had to be tweaked and/or re-recorded in the editing process.
