Rhythm Child at the White House
Welcome to this special episode of the JogTunes Indie Podcast. It’s mostly for the kids, with some great tempos for big folks as well.
Since 2003, Norm Jones, as Rhythm Child, has brought a new kind of music to kids and their parents. With an emphasis on rhythm and percussion, Rhythm Child sends messages to kids about good behavior, having fun, and handling tough situations.
JogTunes brings you 9 great Rhythm Child tunes with tempos that are perfect for running to the beat.
So parents — you can play these songs to motivate your kids to get up and running for great exercise and fitness. Be sure the kids are fit for speed. It’s not crucial that they match the fast tempos. The key is to move and have fun.
Hey kids — you can match the beat of these songs with your feet. It’s great fun. Dr. Bob helps you out during the show.
The BPM range is from 141 to 182.
My thanks goes to Heather and Norm Jones of the Rhythm Child Network for their generosity in providing the music for this special episode.
More thanks goes to the talented Troy Warden for his great intro.
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT OUR SHOW
The JogTunes Indie
a 30 to 60 minute
podcast that's meant to
be “run to.”
By that we mean it’s
intended to be listened
to while you’re
Well, that was the original intent. Turns out, most indoor cyclist, aquarunners, users of
stairmasters, ellipticals and mini-trampolines, and even swimmers, may find these
shows great for working out exactly to the tempos of indie music.
The songs are selected
and sequenced solely
for working out exactly
to the beat of the
music. The shows begin
with a brief introduction
and a warm-up tune usually
in the 110-130 BPM
range. This is followed
by a series
that begins in the
140-150 range and
usually peaks with
tunes in the BPM range
of 170-185. The sequence
slows back down to
a cool-down in the
Some episodes may have a "sprint segment" which follows a cool-down tune at around 15 minutes toward
the end of the episode. This segment is a short, fast set that ends with a final cool-down track. Some users may need to keep their workout short and stop with the first cool-down while others may want to complete the full episode.
Dr. Bob, the founder of
JogTunes.com, is the producer and host.
He provides introductions
to the songs along
with the BPM details.
The indie artists' tunes are podsafe and come from many resources. Our main, podsafe, tune-download resources are the
Mevio's Music Alley
and the Independent Online Distribution Alliance (IODA)'s promonet
and Ariel's Cyber PR
Dr. Bob finds many bands and tunes from other podcasters' shows. Listings of these shows can be found on sites such as
The Alliance for Music Podcasting
, and, of course, the iTunes Music Store. There are also many websites that are dedicated
to indie music and provide lists of bands and their works. Finally,
many of the bands have promoters who announce new tunes and albums by email. This is a great way to come across some fine indie music.
Most of the tunes on the playlists are available via our links to the
iTunes Music Stores in the
US, the UK, Irelend, Canada, and Japan. Some of the songs
can be purchased by clicking
on links to Amazon/MP3, the Podsafe
Music Network (PMN)
or through links to the artists' and/or their promoters' websites.
We play many artists promoted by Cyber PR. Here's more:
