Mr. Stephens is still playing goofy songs for kids even after some of them have grown up. He saw one of them driving away from Urbana High School the other day. Lucky there are still kids in the Kindergarten classrooms. He’d sure be sad if he ran out of pre school and early elementary age kids to come and sing a long with his songs about chicken feet, numbers, the ABC’s and flying saucers.
Mr. Stephens Family Show at the festival is made possible by the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music, University Library, UIUC.
