This week’s episode was co-hosted by our special Guest DJ, all the way from L.A., Gwendolyn Sanford from Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang. This West Coast seven-piece band recently finished an East Coast Tour, including a stop here in the Hilltowns! Gwendolyn came by the studio and did a Guest DJ set with us before heading off to Boston to conclude their tour and to face the remnants of Hurricane Noel. (Hey G., Hope y’all got out of Beantown alright.) Super nice person! We look forward to having her on the show again.
PERFORMANCE AT CAM
This past Saturday they performed at the Children’s Art Museum in Shelburne Falls, and they ROCKED! Click here to see photos from the performance. I was pleasantly surprised at how engaging and dynamic the band was. The kids just loved them, as you can see here in a low-fi video shot during the concert of “Red Means Stop” off of their album Get Up and Dance, a song which brings the game “Red Light, Green Light” into the rock n’ roll arena:
My daughter has been singing/playing this song/game ever since Saturday. She’s grown especially fond of singing it when I’m cooking dinner, which eventually leads to food burning or something spilling over before I nix the game. And I’ve found myself taking advantage of her fondness of this song by singing it to her when getting her dressed, brushing her teeth, or any other time I need her to be wiggle-free.
