It came to my attention today that I have NEVER blogged about Jungle Jam & Friends! This is a travesty that I will now correct.
A long, long time ago, when Evan was just a wee tot, my dear friend Kate introduced me to a radio program called Jungle Jam & Friends. Now, since our family and Kate's seem to be the only people around who have EVER heard of Jungle Jam, I am taking it upon myself to educate you all.
It didn't run on the radio for very long (for reasons I don't understand), but we purchased tapes of the shows and listened to them repetitively. So much so, that every member of our family can recite almost all 36 programs word for word.
What made them so appealing to us...well, they are extremely funny (and not just for the kids). Talking monkeys, flying squirrels, bears, etc., along with strange creatures called Razzleflabbens and young kids with the last name of Snuffleson make for entertaining listening. Think of them as the precursor to Veggie Tales.
Because we own these on cassette tapes, and because they have been listened to many, many, many times, most of them are somewhat...destroyed or damaged. This makes me sad :-( BUT, guess what? I discovered that you can purchase most of the episodes on CD's now!!!! This makes me happy :-) You can also download some of the programs (for less $)
