RANDY KAPLAN’S – TRIPPIN’ ROUND THE MITTEN

We are loving Randy Kaplan’s latest album and we can not wait to tell you about it! Why? Because,not only is Randy an award-winning singer-songwriter who has put his love of Tin Pan Alley, folk, rock. blues, ragtime, bluegrass, and Broadway music on display many times before. Now, with his 6th not-JUST-for-kids album, Trippin’ Round the Mitten, he adds hip-hop, pop, doo-wop, and punk to the list.

How Distracted Are You?

Have you ever tried speaking to someone who seemed too busy to really listen?  Someone who doesn’t’ seem to really care? Maybe you encountered people who as soon as you mention you had a difficult day interrupts you and tells you how their day has been worse? They may have been looking at the phone, distracted by their surroundings or lost in their own thoughts and only mustered up a darting glance and a passing comment. A darting glance that was just enough to keep you talking and continuing to make your point. Maybe they said the “uh-huh’s,”  “really,” and ” I can’t believe that” at just the right time during the conversation but in actuality their attention was anywhere, but paying attention to what you were really saying.
