The Great Equalizer: Pandora Radio

Ever since the Great Computer Crash of 2009 a few weeks ago, we have been living without without a soundcard, without properly accompanied YouTube, without Pandora Radio. Until yesterday.

My new soundcard arrived, Papa installed it (thank you sweetie!), and I could not be happier. I didn't realized how utterly dependent upon Pandora Radio I'd become. And I certainly didn't realize how much the boys would miss it.

Music is the ultimate Great Equalizer. Whenever there is an energy shift needed, we select the appropriate playlist. Need to get some wiggles out on a rainy day? Insert some funk, reggae, hip-hop. Everyone squirrely and need to calm down a bit? Folk, soulful singing, harmonies. Fun for the whole family? Bluegrass, works every time.

Here is a list of our favorite kid-sized Pandora stations.

Laurie Berkner
Jack Johnson
Elizabeth Mitchell
Trout Fishing in America
Arlo Guthrie
Peter and the Wolf
Jerry Garcia & David Grisman
They Might Be Giants
Putumayo Kids
Cathy Heller
Ladysmith Black Mambazo
