On this episode of The Childrens Hour we’re joined by the legendary children’s musician Laurie Berkner for a mini concert and conversation. Plus we’ll find out about what’s going on with albatrosses, and we learn about a newly discovered species of dinosaur, the Dineobellator notehesperus.

Zen and Amadeus also talked about microraptors – click to learn more and the Zhenyuanlong dinosaur.

We also featured the Extinction Diaries with a piece on albatrosses. This is produced out of KFOI-fm in Redding/Red Bluff, CA.


The Children’s Hour is supported by the City of Albuquerque Cultural Services Department and Mayor Tim Keller, city councilor Pat Davis, as well as Bernalillo County, New Mexico’s Commission. We also have support from Electric Playhouse and Meow Wolf.  Numerous foundations also support our work including the Infinite Gesture Fund, The Limestone Fund, The Laughing Buddha Fund, and the Entheogen Fund. Thank you to our listeners who also support us!
