If the thought of giving Dad yet another ugly tie, addition to the workshop or #1 Dad mug for Father's Day seems … well … boring, you might want to consider this offer from Saturday Light Brigade.
Now through Sunday, the radio station is offering a chance for kids to record their Father's Day message for Dad.
Children and youth ages 5 and older can record a personal message, poem, song, or story for Dad—or for their mother, grandparent, or special caregiver. The SLB staff will conduct welcoming interviews about the person receiving the card, and will record greetings and messages live onto an audio CD in its broadcast studios.
The professional-quality cards will be edited on site and the CD will be attached to a special card, which children can then personalize. The cards can be brought home the same day.
Creation of personalized audio cards is available for recording in May and June each year at SLB. No appointment is necessary.
Purchase of a CD Creation Card Kit is required in the Children’s Museum gift shop prior to recording. The cost is $12, which includes a CD, card kit, decorating supplies, studio time, and editing. All proceeds benefit programs for children and youth at SLB Radio.
