TMBG – Spare the Rock

Spare the Rock’s Bill Childs is also one of the driving forces behind KindieFest and the Fids & Kamily Music Awards, a yearly celebration of the best in Kids & Family Music. Speaking of that, this is the first year that The Rock Father has been invited to take part as a judge, and I turned in my ballot last week. The winners will be announced on Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child on November 17, 2012. Stay tuned!
