Jam to New Indie Tunes, Out Free for Mother’s Day

Friday, May 9th, 2014

If the only song you associate with Mother’s Day is “Mamma Mia,” it’s time to expand your horizons with a playlist featuring some less mainstream tunes. 

From now until May 16, you can download eight songs from independent artists when using your desktop or laptop device–and the tunes are free. Moms familiar with the Legally Blonde soundtrack will enjoy hearing Lisa Loeb’s “No Fairy Tale” (her song “We Could Still Belong Together” was featured in the movie!).

Other songs include: “Our Love Fits” (Danny Weinkauf with Laurie Berkner), “Tu Eres Amor” (Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band), “Smile in My Heart” and “Mama’s House, Daddy’s House” (Suzi Shelton), “Ice Cream Girl,” (Brady Rymer), “Mockingbird,” (Zee Avi), and “Black Bear Mama” (The Okee Dokee Brothers).

Celebrate Your Toddler’s Birthday on the Air With Laurie Berkner

Friday, August 10th, 2012

This week, Sirius XM Radio launched a new radio program to celebrate kids’ birthdays nationwide. Laurie Berkner, the former preschool teacher and award-winning children’s singer and songwriter, will host the eponymous show Laurie Berkner’s Every Day Birthday Party.

The show will appear on Sirius XM Kids Place Live, a 24/7 interactive talk show featuring music, talk shows, and on-air games for kids.

Each month, Berkner will select a group of toddlers and preschoolers (ages 1 to 5) to feature on the show. Each lucky toddler will receive a personal birthday salutation and hear a special “kindie rock” musical performance by Berkner herself.

Laurie Berkner’s Every Day Birthday Party airs Monday through Friday at 12:30 p.m. ET, 1:30 p.m. ET and 2:30 p.m. ET on Sirius XM Kids Place Live channel 78.

Parents can submit requests to kidsplacelive@siriusxm.com. The deadline for September shout-outs is August 20, 2012 5 p.m. ET. (The SIRIUS XM website also recommends including a 30-minute window of time you listen to the show during the day.)
