John thanks for reviewing Junk Drawer. The song is quite different then many of my style and fictional in its story telling. I have to agree with you about the specificity on both counts, 1 that it is the character and charm of the song and two it takes away from its marketable appeal. I never really thought about bringing oin the reins on it to make it broader and I find this thought intriguing if nothing else. Thanks for opening my eyes and mind

Yeah, it's pretty rare that I do some rewriting on something and it actually gets worse. So I figure, why not experiment? I think of it as cheap fun. And CAR TALK is a fantastic show, isn't it?

Great great show indeed. PS... Entering Marion is one of my all time favorites. Every now and then I hear a song and say, Damn I wish I thought of that. I'm kicking back this am listening my way through your tunes. Much respect.

Hallo John, You asked what kind of kids' music I write: I write funny, witty lyrics to amuse parents as well as kids. The music is by Beatrix Greiner. I wish you'd hear some of my songs, I'd love to know your opinion.

I checked out your songs. Very charming! The CD seems to create a warm, friendly and consistent universe that should speak loudly to young kids. Good performances, good production. I would think the only sticky wicket is how to mainstream it to the public without one main performer or brand to focus attention and media hype around. This is the hardest part of the kids' music business, as far as I'm concerned. But nice work! I wish you great good luck with it!!

Many thanks, John, I am very grateful to you for taking time to hear the songs, and I appreciate your critique. You point out the hurdle we face with this kind of CD. I have another 11 songs even more diverse than these, and I don't know how to market them, together or as singles. The songs are written as poems, and the composers have chosen the ones that inspired them to write the music, not a very practical approach, but a satisfying way to work. Thank you again, I'm going to listen to more of your songs, too. I like wit and humor. The very best regards, Birthe.

Thanks for the nice review, Birthe. I certainly agree that this song is for a very narrow market. What kind of kids' music do you write? That field is actually my day job.

hej John, I write the lyrics for amusing, witty songs that hopefully make parents as well as kids laugh - or at least smile. Beatrix Greiner and Dave Lefever compose the music. Listen to my songs, please - I'd be very grateful for your opinion.

hi John and thanx for your review of Mandolin Minute--damn you are absolutely right about the brightness of it, i took my producers stem of just the mandolin (it's from a total instrumental) and mixed it myself on my Boss, but noticed that it was a bit on the high EQ side...so great ears and comments. thanx again, all the best Warren Hein

Thanks for the kind words. You ears are not fooling you, its as low budget of a recording as they come. I kind of road test them here first. Its literally garage band and and a really cheap mic! thanks for the review and good luck to you. Great profile shot by the way!
