Kids America – What was it…

Kids America was a fabulous radio production that came from WNYC in the mid 80’s. Since this was before the web, I have decided to post some articles about the show in the hopes that people like you will stumble accross them.

If you remember Kids America, PLEASE send me an e-mail: ka_email (this email wasn’t working before, sorry. It works now…)

I would love to be in touch and reminisce about the show and put together a nice celebration of it.

I am working on digitizing the tapes I have and hope to post some snippets of these online soon. I also wrote a wikipedia article on K.A. and submitted it. If it gets published, it will be here.

    Woohoo! Kids America! What a great show – creative, thoughtful, engaging, and totally kid-focused. I volunteered, answered phones, talked to kids. Adopted a kitty in the studio (brought in by Dr. Rita Book who saved it on the street). Ahhhh, fond memories!

    This is amazing! Thank you for posting all of these wonderful items. I happened to find Kathy in a Facebook group, as we are both fans of the same podcast.

    I was a high school intern for several years at Small Things Considered and Kids America. I played Judy Garland as a Mystery History guest (the only time I went on air!). Happy to chat about memories working for Marcy, having lunch on the top of 1 Centre, etc. – and if anyone has the Judy Garland clip, I’d love to hear it.
