We wrote a Coronavirus song and it caught the attention of the music super stars.  Kids Talk Radio Science has a program to help with keeping jazz alive in our schools.  We got very lucky, and the four big music  publishing organizations learned about what we are doing.  When you listen to or buy our music online we get to use the revenue to buy drones and robots for our students in the USA and Pedro Pires High School in the Republic of Cabo Verde.  Our students share STEAMD++ (science, technology, engineering, visual and performing arts, space mathematics, design, computer languages, and World languages) project-based learning with other students.

Kids Talk Radio is all about podcasting and supporting our visual and performing arts programs from a distance.
