Host of Kidstuff
WDVX brought children’s radio programming back to East Tennessee on August 2011 with Kidstuff. There was no question about who should host this high energy show.
Sean McCollough has been entertaining and educating families and school groups with his energetic shows since the mid-90s. He has been compared to Pete Seeger and John McCutcheon for his use of traditional music and storytelling as well as his charismatic performances.
He plays the guitar, banjo and mandolin and draws heavily on the music of the Appalachian Mountains. He mixes world music, original songs, and other contemporary sounds into his performances that are built around audience participation. He recently released an album of sixteen songs for children and families entitled This Is Our House. Steve Wildsmith of the Daily Times says, “It’s music that doesn’t sound prefabricated or condescending, tunes that can be enjoyed by all ages even if the target audience is kids.”
