WTMD is excited to announce the launch of Saturday Morning Tunes, a new family-friendly concert series featuring rising stars of the children’s music scene, hosted at the WTMD performance studio in Towson.
The shows are once a month on Saturday mornings through April, broadcast live on the radio with a live studio audience of little ones! (That’s where you come in.)
UPDATE: We're thrilled to announce the Charm City Bluegrass stage, with acoustic performances on the plaza outside WTMD during our June 17 Family Festival. More details to come!
Doors open at 9 a.m. and the music runs from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Each performance has an opening act as well as a headliner. We'll have snacks (organic fig bars and fruit strips) as well as drinks (Horizon milk and Honest juice) which are included in the ticket price for all kids. Race Pace Bicycles also sets up bicycles with training wheels for children to ride around the enclosed plaza outside our studio, and we'll have arts and crafts too!
The WTMD performance studio is a safe, clean environment with comfy furniture that’s ideal for climbing and sitting. Both our men’s and women’s bathrooms have stainless steel changing tables, and we now have stools for our bathroom sinks (so you don't have to hoist your little ones up to the faucet).
Also -- kids under 2 are free! However, please reserve a free spot for your kid(s) under 2 so we know how many little ones to expect.
Saturday Morning Tunes Mini-Festival!!!
We're throwing open our doors for this new indoor/outdoor version of Saturday Morning Tunes, featuring live music on the plaza and the main stage! We're thrilled to welcome children's musician and storyteller Barry Louis Polisar, who wrote "All I Want Is You," the theme song to the hit movie "Juno."
And we'll have the debut of the Saturday Morning Tunes house band -- the Cartunes!! -- performing theme songs to your favorite cartoons like "Duck Tales," "Bob the Builder," "Inspector Gadget," "Daniel Tiger" and many more.
Join us for the bigger, better, summer edition of Saturday Morning Tunes! We'll see you rain or shine!
