Every class that I visit on the Reading Writing and Rhyming Tour is very friendly to me, don't get me wrong.  But sometimes you meet OVER THE TOP friendly kids. Kids that make you laff so hard, you want to do something insane like play the piano with your elbow, nose and head.  (Been there,-now I've done that at Hadley Luzerne Elementary School.)

We have been on the lookout for the most awesome, "over the top"  school playground in the Capital Region.  And we found one that was so cool that I packed up the keyboard,  drove out there and wrote a song with the kids that explains just how amazing it is!

Van Corlaer Schoolkids Sing To Help Capital Region Cops (AUDIO)

Every year, the Sean and Richie Show and WGNA do our part to help to raise money for families of police officers killed in the line of duty.  It's a tragedy that keeps on happening no matter what we do, but we try very hard to ease the pain of these unfortunate people. To raise everyone's spirits (as well as awareness), however,  it always helps to include the fantastic voices and talents of area schoolchildren!

It is!!!  Just ask the kids!  They'll break into song at any moment to tell you about it.  And I was lucky enough to be there to capture it with my handy-dandy recorder.

Reading, Writing and Rhyming Program-How It Started

 The very first time I went to visit a school to write a song parody with kids, I walked out with my tail between my legs!  It was a high school senior history class.  OK, it was an 8th period class in May, so maybe I'm being too picky.  But let's put it this way--I ran out of that building so fast, they almost signed me up for the track team!
