I have had the joy of lending my voice to Muppet characters on Sesame Street for many years. Most of my recordings for the show have gone uncredited, but the time has come for the Big Reveal. You might say I am like the Marni Nixon of the Sesame Street Muppets. Just as Ms. Nixon dubbed the voices of Audrey Hepburn, Deborah Kerr, and Natalie Wood in the great movie musicals, I lay claim to the voices of international pig celebrity Sooey Oinker, country porker Hammy Swinette, and bovine pop sensation Mariah Cowey. Over the years, I have played worms, amphibians, monsters, balls, chairs, numbers, letters, vegetables, and more! Here are some of my favorite videos from the show.

There is nothing more exciting (and terrifying) than singing on a "live" radio show! The first four tracks below are from my NPR days. Some of the happiest moments of my life were spent singing with The Coffee Club Orchestra! When I was on A Prairie Home Companion, also known for a while as the American Radio Company of the Air, we traveled with an all-star big band conducted by Rob Fisher. Most of the arrangements were done by Russell Warner. The fifth tune, Bewitched, is a "live" performance from Wall-to-Wall Richard Rodgers, broadcast on WNYC from Symphony Space. My arrangement is by Dick Lieb, Lanny Meyers is on piano, and Elliot Lawrence conducts. And for those of you interested in hearing some of my quirky voices, the last track below says it all!
