Funky as a Diaper
price: $9.98 + shipping
Let's Rock... with Uncle Jim!
This CD contains 12 original songs for children of all ages! Jim's intention with this CD was "to make it fun for kids and musically interesting for adults. It sounds like an adult album, but with fun, child-like lyrics." Jim Mayer shines on bass and vocals on this humorous and joyful collection of children's tunes. Joining Uncle Jim on this project are fellow Coral Reefers Roger Guth, Tom (T.C.) Mitchell, Nadirah Shakoor, Tina Gullickson, Amy Lee, John Lovell and Heather Perry. Additional musicianship is provided by Larry Byron, Chris Walters, Jim White, Pat Bergeson, Jeff Coffin, Roy Agee and Brad Guin.
I bought your CD with the best of intentions of giving it away to a friend with small children. However, in the midst of listening to it, somehow I became attached. Ouch! So I will need to get a second CD for my friend.
I was on my way home listening to Funky As A Diaper. I missed a road by about 10 miles because I got into it so much and was laughing so hard, I actually missed driving through a whole town. That CD is a stroke of genius. I can't wait to share it with others.
Funky as a Diaper displaced Wayne From Maine as the official kids' CD we need to listen to FIRST on our ski trips. My kids just love the CD. My 7-year-old and I recite lyrics from different songs now and he laughs so hard when he sings them.
I just wanted to send you a little note to let you know how much the children liked your CD. I knew they were going to like it as soon as I played it because I saw shoulders moving, feet tapping, and heads bobbing. I played the CD initially while the children (4 and 5 yr. olds) were doing their projects at tables. Even when no music was playing I would often hear them singing "Funky As A Diaper." I even caught myself walking around the room singing it. We also learned a few songs at circle time. Our favorites were "Rain" and "Smile in the Sky." I used those songs around Earth Day and they became so popular we sang them the rest of the school year.

My family has made your song "Where's the Turkey" a holiday tradition. Without telling them what to expect, I slipped the CD on to see what their reaction would be. Needless to say, they loved it. You were the hit of Thanksgiving!
Iíve been using the CD at school with my kindergarteners and they love it! It has gotten us through quite a few rain, rain, rainy days that we've had recently this fall in North Carolina! Thank you Uncle Jim.
Uncle Jim has really unleashed some creative juices in this CD... a treasure in the family trove!
