To have Todd McHatton / Sundays at the Rocket Park included on Time Out New York Kids List of Best Kids Albums of 2010 with so many phenomenally great artists is absolutely overwhelming.
As those of you who’ve been visiting here over the last several years know, this has been a total, absolute blast – writing songs, drawing pictures and comics, publishing my first book – all completely and exclusively for the fun. joy, and entertainment it provides me and my family – and look what’s happened, we got an audience!
I don’t think I’ve ever done a mchatton.com update without a brand new tune attached to it but I just really really wanted to thank Jeff Bogle at OWTK and TimeOut New York Kids in a really big way… pure and simple. I absolutely love making music and it is so incredibly gratifying to know that so many more people are hearing it now. I had actually been struggling with the idea of having to incorporate anything “business like” into all of this fun – publicity, advertising, networking, sales, merchandising, etc. The idea of messing up all this fun with all that… well, “work” was not really part of the original dream.
Because of people like Jeff Bogle, Amberly Warnke over at Pied Piper Radio/Ages 3 and Up, Dave Loftin over at the Saturday Morning Cereal Bowl, and Bill Childs over at Spare the Rock Spoil the Child I’ve been given the opportunity to continue focusing on the joyful stuff and they’ve brought more of you here for me to share it with. Thank You SO MUCH!
Since this is a big brag and thanks I should also mention that 2 Songs from the album also made OWTK’s Favorite 50 Kindie Songs of 2010 and the artwork made the list as one of OWTK’s Top 15 Kindie Album Art/CD Covers of 2010!
