Kid Rock: Ralph Covert

There is an article in the New York Times about Ralph Covert, who has a band called Bad Examples but also makes children's music that parents like. Apparently, his band is pretty successful in Chicago but hasn't made it nationally. After doing some work with kids, he was approached by Minty Fresh, which has a children's music division called Mini-Fresh. As I have said before, I have a three-year-old nephew, so I appreciate the need for music that pleases a child but doesn't drive adults crazy. Actually, my nephew likes to sing along with the Smiths (especially "Unloveable") and has an ear for traditional Indian tunes, so the music situation isn't as much of a problem for our family.
