Sukey Molloy Brings Music to Move to
to the Hilltown Family Variety Show this Weekend!
With NAPPA, Children’s Music Web, Preferred Choice, and Mom’s Choice Awards proudly in hand, children’s singer/songwriter Sukey Molloy is delighted to be a Guest DJ for a special “Music to Move To” radio broadcast of Hilltown Family Variety Show on Northampton radio station WXOJ-LP (Valley Free Radio) on Saturday, April 28 at 9:00 a.m. and Sunday, April 29 at 7:00 a.m. and may also be heard online on the Hilltown Family Variety Show podcast immediately following the airing on Saturday.
As a developmental movement educator, former professional modern dancer, and creator of three children’s CDs and the Sukey’s Circle DVD series for children, Sukey Molloy specializes in music and movement styles the whole family can enjoy. Her Hilltown Family Variety Show segment will offer an hour of fun songs to move to, along with tidbits on the benefits of movement alternatives in daily family living. A wide range of songs from the U.S., the Caribbean, France, and Africa, along with four of Sukey’s own songs, will get listeners up and moving along! Featured in Sukey’s segment will be musical selections by Tom Chapin, Brent Holmes, Dr. W.K. Amoaku, Dan Zanes, Alain Schneider, Jeffrey Friedberg, Coalishun, and Laurie Berkner, along with Sukey’s own “Jump Down Turn Around,” “Action Chant,” “Raindrops,” and “If I Had Hands.” Sukey Molloy will also read her original tale, “The Story of Little Flame in the Arctic.”
Sukey Molloy notes, “I thoroughly enjoyed putting this radio show together! I’m very energized by the show’s ‘Music to Move To’ theme, and I’m eager to share all the songs and movement tidbits that will be aired. I’m also excited to read aloud, for the very first time, “The Story of Little Flame in the Arctic.” It is based on my “Little Flame in the Arctic” song and features the melody throughout, with many special sound effects and a visit from the Great Arctic Wind. Be sure to tune in!”
