Steve Nelson & Keith Nottonson

One of the perks of being a parent is the ability to exert your influences on them. You literally have the power to determine what language they use, their view of the world, whether to call them Kleenex or tissues, and most importantly--what kind of music they listen to.

Do you just blast them with Kids Bop, Disney Radio and Little Einsteins? Or do you survey the history of music, culling the best sounds from the past seven decades, in the hopes that they will develop a love and appreciation for the classic?

I think you already know the path that the dads at The New Dad Rock chose; Ween!

In this week's episode, Steve unearths a mix he made his 5-year old daughter over a decade ago. From forgotten blog-approved contemporaries (The Black Kids) to 80s hits (Madonna) to timeless standards (Rosemary Clooney), they cover it all.

Think of the children!
