Episode 8: Iowa City Children's Album

by Iowa Music Showcase

  • Streaming + Download



This project is outgrowth of an University of Iowa couple, Kembrew "Roboprofessor" McLeod and Iowa Review managing editor Lynne Nugent, having a child and thinking they would no longer be able to rock. They turned out to be more capable than me and found a way to rock, as well as put together a children's music album featuring Iowa City musicians of all stripes and children of Iowa City.

You can read the whole story in the liner notes - www.icpl.org/for_kids_by_kids/For_Kids_By_Kids_Liner_Notes.pdf!

This episode features nine of the songs from the album. You can download the whole album for FREE at The Iowa City Public Library website - www.icpl.org/for-kids-and-by-kids!

The podcast also includes one of five songs the album has from Girls Rock! Iowa City's 2014 summer camp!
