 Podcast Six: Jump@7! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:00

Good morning, kids! School is in session again, so we've dedicated this final edition of the Summer Podcast Series (brought to you by Ugly Mugs Coffee Tea) to getting up early. Click on the player below and you'll hear Ella Mae Morse talk about her encounter with forty cups of coffee, three year-old Evan discuss his own personal morning routine, and the world premiere of a brand-new CTRR song entitled "Jump@7"! We still can't figure out how Shorty Peppertone managed to fit all those farm animals into the studio...

 Podcast #4 – Ice Cream! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:21

In this edition of the summer podcast series, sponsored by The Pied Piper Creamery, Katy and Chris are joined in the studio by two young ice-cream experts named Minty and Milkshake, Louis Prima orders a banana split, and the Coal Train Quartet premieres its own frosty-whipped version of "My Chocolate Ice Cream Cone".nbsp; Click on the player below to listen!

 Podcast #3 – Listening/Tantrums | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:51

In the third installment of our Summer 2010 Podcast Series, Chris is distracted by buttons in the studio and has a hard time listening to Katy, who gets impatient with Chris, and all manner of fussiness then ensues.nbsp; Fortunately, our hosts work it out in the end after some advice from Billie Holiday (pictured here in 1917) and a couple of pre-school songwriters.nbsp; The Coal Train Railroad quartet wraps things up with a live in-studio version of "It's Hard To Listen".

 Podcast #2 “The Spider and the Fly” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 16:20

In this edition we speak with the 93 year-old Kansas City jazz legend "Mama" Myra Taylor, listen to the Victrola, chat about bugs with some second-graders, have a snack, and present the world premiere of Coal Train Railroad's version of Myra's composition "The Spider and the Fly".nbsp; Large thanks to our sponsor Fanny's House Of Music.nbsp; Click on the player below!nbsp;

 Podcast #2 – Myra Taylor interview excerpts | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 8:25

Meet our very special guest for Podcast #2, "Mama" Myra Taylor, 93 year-old Kansas City jazz legend, composer of "The Spider and the Fly", and the woman who introduced the Charleston to Oakland, CA!nbsp; Click on the player below to hear Myra discuss baby-talk and Count Basie.nbsp; As a bonus, there's also a lovely a capella performance of her unrecorded song "Black Angel". (We recommend parents preview this segment prior to sharing it with their kids - it's about a little boy who is on his way to heaven and would provide great fodder for discussion as parents deem appropriate.) You can find out more about Myra's life and career in this 2008 article from Curious about the Charleston?nbsp; Click here for a demonstration by Ginger Rogers and Lucille Ball.
