Thanks to my family’s love for Kids Place Live on satellite radio, we have been huge fans of SteveSongs – before he ever even landed on PBS. In fact, that quote above — one of the lines of his songs — is something I believe and repeat on a daily basis.
In May 2008, Steve took on the exciting new role of “Mr. Steve,” cohost of the PBS KIDS preschool destination that features the popular shows Curious George, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Dragon Tales, and Super Why. And this Saturday, he will be right here in our backyard.
We are incredibly excited that Mr. Steve will be in Urbana this Saturday, Oct. 12 – thanks to Illinois Public Media, home of WILL-TV where Mr. Steve graces the local airways.
From 2-4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, Mr. Steve will appear at Illinois Public Media’s Campbell Hall, 300 N. Goodwin Ave., for three brief performances at 2:15, 3:15 and 4:15 p.m. as part of a FREE PBS KIDS Open House.
Mr. Steve will be in Urbana on Saturday, for a few special concerts. And, there will be a whole lot more — storytelling on the plaza during the event; a screening of Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest, and giveaways. The PNC Mobile Learning Adventure will also be on-site with lots of fun stuff to do. It’s also a chance for families to sign up as members If they’re not members already.
No reservations are needed, but performance seating is limited. Call 800-898-1065 during business hours to find out how you can reserve seats. Parking will be available in University of Illinois lot B-22 on Clark Street just east of Goodwin Avenue and across the street from Campbell Hall.
