Mindy

Mindy

For Mindy, the Absolutely Mindy Show is just an excuse to prolong her own childhood, which she spent sitting in her closet playing radio. She had the number one radio station in the whole house, and this gave her confidence to try it after college. When she's not busy talking into her hairbrush microphone, she can be found playing in the great outdoors, teaching her cat how to smile, trying to learn the banjo, paying parking tickets, or dancing like a hillbilly. Her mom wants her to invest in a "nice pair of black pants" as a sign of sophistication, but Mindy knows better.

Jack Forman

Jack Forman

Jack Forman is a member of Seattle’s Recess Monkey, the band of longtime elementary teachers who have self-released eight LPs for kids and families. The band has earned national acclaim for pitch-perfect understanding of childhood, and their seamless appeal to every member of the family. He’s been a regular contributor to SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live for four years, most recently producing a series of music education specials called Recess Monkey’s TUNEiversity. Though no longer in the classroom, Jack continues to work tirelessly in the field of education. He has served on non-profit boards, has spoken on several music and education panels about music’s impact on kids, and is a champion of the kind of high quality “kindie” music being made right this minute across the country. He and his wife have a toddler, two chickens and a cat, though only one has his own room.

Kenny Curtis

Kenny Curtis

Here is a funny thing about Kenny Curtis. He was the last person to see what everyone around him knew all along: He was born to do children's broadcasting. In college, when he was looking for sane, respectable work, his roommate sent him to audition for the clown/co-host role on a children's TV show. "You'll be perfect for this," he said, and Kenny got the job. As an undergraduate with serious acting aspirations, Kenny landed a role in a movie for adults called Cry-Baby. Coincidence? We don't think so. As he pursued his career in children's programming in both radio and television, Kenny discovered that not growing up could be a valuable asset on the job. It may explain why today, as a father of five, he still has an uncanny knack for finding the way to children's hearts and minds. Hear his vision of kids' radio come alive on Kids Place Live.
