This just in from John Forster

Hi Friends -

A note to let you know that "NOT ON THE TEST," a new satirical song I wrote with longtime collaborator Tom Chapin, airs THURSDAY morning on NPR's Morning Edition. It'll be coming out of a Larry Abramson story on school testing and will air at roughly 25 minutes past the hour (though they can't tell us WHICH hour). If you're listening to NPR tomorrow morning keep your ears peeled.

The All-Purpose Carol

You may enjoy this excerpt of The All-Purpose Carol, written and produced by a brilliant guy I've been privileged to work with a few times: John Forster, on a children's album by Tom Chapin, called Making Good Noise. This song was in a show called Both Barrels - which I piano/conducted in 1999, after Steve Orich musical directed. The rest of Making Good Noise is also brilliant, and it's now my kids' favorite.

It's That Time of Year...
