If you haven’t noticed, musical artists are finally recognizing children as a target audience. However, if you are anything like me, you don’t want to be stuck listening to Barney or the Wiggles for days as their music is truly not that stimulating. Believe it or not, parents want to have fun with their children while stimulating their children’s minds. Music is an outlet many are looking to. Wayne Rhoden, also known as Rankin Don in dance halls in Jamaica, is a new up and coming children’s music artist. To children, he is known as Father Goose. His new solo album “It's a Bam Bam Diddly” is a compilation of songs he has heard and sang as a child with his own “twist.” This album which is also produced by Dan Zanes, a well known children’s artist, helps make this C.D. an exciting and fun compilation for children to sing and dance to. Special appearances are made by Father Goose’s mother, Dan Zanes, Sheryl Crowe and various other musical artists. This is a MUST listen.
