It is Live Music Week again here at 88.9 WERS! We are bringing you all of your favorite music live in studio, and asking for your support for non-commercial public radio! During this week we are able to bring in some of your favorite artists to play for you live on-air because we love you! I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of interviewing Lunch Money when they came into The Playground.
They played their first song, “I Want To Push Buttons,” a fun song about pushing the good kind of buttons rather than pushing peoples buttons to make them upset or angry. I asked how they got a start in children’s music and band member Molly Ledford explained how after trying “sad adult music” for a while, she decided to try some more energetic, fun music for the young and young at heart!
The second song was called, “You, Me, and a Bottle a Bottle of Bubbles” which sounded like a whole lot of fun to me! I asked the band what WERS and non-commercial public radio meant to them and Molly explained how WERS featured their music as an album of the month and was the first time that their music really got out there, and realized that people love their music. I know I sure do!
Their final song was “Gingerbread Man”, where the band told all of our Playgrounders to make-believe that they were the gingerbread man, and “run, run, run as fast as you can!” I had so much fun live in-studio with this band, to check out an album review of their album Spicy Kid, on the Playground page you will find the review by Chanta Chanta.
