Over all these years, Lois’ appreciation of the skill of the players she has worked with has continued to grow.  She always felt “we would do nothing less for kids than we would for an adult audience.”  She sends a special shout out to all of her musician pals in gratitude for how they did what they did:  Gordon Kennedy, Carlton Bacon, Mark Harris, Rebecca Martin, Glenn Taylor, Chico Meira, Raoul Rossiter, and the “featured” Ron Miles, Hazel Miller, Miguel Espinoza, Mollie O’Brien and so many more!

One of Lois' favorite things to do: bring kids into Coupe Studios to record music especially for them.
