SteveSongs Hangs with Mindy

SteveSongs came into the KPL studio today to hang out with Mindy. Steve talked about his new song with Mindy, then Steve played it -- it's about his trip and hanging out with Mindy, but oops, he said "XMKids." can he change that to "Kids Place Live"? "Hobby Paper" rhymes with Robbie Schaefer, but it is a little weird, isn't it?

He comes up with ideas from things that pop up in everyday life. He gets ideas from kids and parents. Mindy said don't ask for "Crazy Frog", so the first kid asked SteveSongs to play "Alvin and the Chipmunks." Argh!

Steve lives in Connecticut, but he's in DC to play at Jammin' Java tomorrow and then one on Sunday in Owings Mills. Steve started writing songs when he was in college. Steve says that he doesn't know how to read music very well! Steve loved science in school.

Steve and Logan (regular caller) performed "Fast Monkey" together live on the air. Fantastic! Mindy got Steve to help press buttons; I don't think he broke anything. Steve's cat Emma has three legs, but she gets around just fine. Steve gave a shout out to Milkshake (we can't wait to see them again -- soon).

Steve got bullied around when he was in fifth grade. The bully let up on Steve when he was able to score goals in football. He was never mean back to the bully.

Chloe chatted (and chatted and chatted) with Steve and Mindy. Steve pulled his band out of his pocket. David Stackhouse (beat box), Paul "Puddles" Pampanela (electric guitar), and The Sensational Sillies, Serena (12) and Ailey (10). The band performed "Spyrtle the Turtle" live (for our Chloe - the photo is of the girls near the Sea Turtle Center in Jekyll Island) and then "Giant."

Steve has five albums, and you HAVE to get SteveSongs DVD!! He's on PBSKids too.

Mindy, Steve and the band THANKS SO MUCH! Xhloe has perked up so much. You guys rock!
