Re: “Would you let your children listen to Justin Roberts?

I produced RECESS, and beyond finding these interviews really interesting, I really appreciate Jim and Shelley's follow-up comments. To be honest, I have no real interest in kids music, music for children, whatever you want to call it. I agree with Shelley that it is largely a marketing thing anymore. I also firmly agree with Jim about kids affinity for guitar rock. Most of us who love rock n' roll have loved it from the first time we heard it. Justin happens to be particularly gifted in this milieu, and so the lyrics and subject matter in the songs are family-friendly, etc.—but when we make these records, I approach them like I would any record. I try to serve the songs as well as I can, get the best players I can, and make a record I would like to listen to—and I do like to listen to them. I think they're great records and I'm proud to have my name on them.
