EVTkids ,

Awesome Children’s music Show!

We love this show! We’ve discovered many wonderful different artists creating great kids music that is enjoyed by our whole family, kids and adults. Sagan has also been supportive by giving airplay for my two children’s music projects (EVT Kids and The Gum Drops). Definitely tune in and you’ll enjoy!!

Best thing on the planet!

Every single time I listen to this show, I write down the names of 2-3 artists that I wish I knew about earlier. Just true geniuses across multiple genres. It’s all suitable for kids, but most of the songs also appeal to me as an adult. Sagan is a genius in their own right for being able to curate this huge variety of music in a way that flows together smoothly. Wonderful show, and I’ll never stop sharing it with people, especially ones with kids.
