This project is outgrowth of an University of Iowa couple, Kembrew "Roboprofessor" McLeod and Iowa Review managing editor Lynne Nugent, having a child and thinking they would no longer be able to rock. They turned out to be more capable than me and found a way to rock, as well as put together a children's music album featuring Iowa City musicians of all stripes and children of Iowa City.

This episode features nine of the songs from the album. You can download the whole album for FREE at The Iowa City Public Library website - http://www.icpl.org/for-kids-and-by-kids!
The podcast also includes one of five songs the album has from Girls Rock! Iowa City's 2014 summer camp!
And you can also check out The Folk Family Machine Trio, who sing on this episode and the album, at a fundraiser at Public Space 1 in Iowa City at 7 pm on Thursday, April 30.
