Mother’s Day… Yes, Folks that important holiday is right around the corner. (Dear Wigle Whiskey – please be planning a mothers day tasting event!). Mother’s day gifts can be tricky – but the Children’s Museum has stepped into save the day!
This is such a cool idea from the folks at Saturday Light Brigade. If you aren’t familiar with SLB – it is a a public radio show that has been on the air since 1978 with acoustic music and family friendly fun. A few years ago the SLB started broadcasting from the Children’s Museum.
For mothers day they will help you record a cd with an audio message for mom from their recording studio.
DATES: April 28–May 13 (for Mother’s Day) and June 2–June 17 (for Father’s Day)
TIME: 1–4 p.m.
LOCATION: SLB Radio Productions, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh
COST: $12 for a card/CD kit from the museum shop
Let your own voice be the unique message and special one-of-a-kind gift you give this year for Mother’s Day and/or Father’s Day!
During the hands-on program, children and youth ages 5 and up will record a personal message, poem, song, or story for their mother, father, grandparent, or special caregiver. SLB staff will conduct welcoming interviews about the person receiving the card, and will record greetings and messages live onto an audio CD in its award-winning broadcast studios.
After the recording session, the professional-quality cards will be edited on site. The audio CD will be affixed to a special card, which children and youth will decorate and personalize using a variety of art materials. Ready for delivery in just a short time, audio cards will be brought home that very day as a Mother’s Day/Father’s Day gift that will be cherished for a lifetime.
Creation of personalized audio cards is available for recording in May and June each year at SLB. No appointment is necessary. Purchase of a CD Creation Card Kit is required in the Children’s Museum gift shop prior to recording. The cost is $12, which includes a CD, card kit, decorating supplies, studio time, and editing. All proceeds benefit programs for children and youth at SLB Radio.

Oh man, i used to listen to the SLB all the time, and I didn’t even realize it was still around! Too bad there’s no stream or podcast.
