The Jim Henson Experience: Emmet Otter’s Jugband

..if you grew up in the 70s and early 80s like I did and you watched all those Schoolhouse Rock interstitials and TV shows like the J5, Sid and Marty Krofft and the Muppet show, then you were unwittingly availed to a wide-reaching plethora of musical genres and it probably still affects the way you absorb tunes today…around this time of year Christmas Specials became especially ubiquitous and one of my all-time favorite musical kiddie shows, a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving/ Christmas notwithstanding, was Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas…Long before there was an Elmo, Jim Henson, the Mack Daddy who brought us Sesame Street, and his puppet masters rocked wild with the tunage, taught a grip of budding music freaks to believe in themselves and to always try to do the right thing…that’s hella tight read the rest
