This time on The Children’s Hour, it’s all about silly songs, jokes and stories. We’re joined by comedian, children’s musician and funny guy Mike Phirman with a conversation about what makes a song funny.

We’ll hear a telling of the Three Little Pigs by celebrated storyteller Len Cabral with a twist on the ending, and we’ll hear another story from Keith Munslow about braving the bog.

Mixed with great music, including some brand new summer 2021 releases. Join us for an hour of fun!
