    Mumcast 61 "The Good Life" with John Bower/Brandon Reed

    Cecil! A Kid's Eye View of the Arts Mumcast 57
    In this episode, it's a family affair. We spoke to my 11-year old nephew Cecil. But this is no cutesy give-a-kid-a-mic interview. Cecil Mummey is already a serious composer, and has written a musical produced by his school, and acted in a number of productions. He is now working on a musical about Albert Einstein. He'll talk about the process, and his hopes for getting the piece produced in a larger venue. It's a kid's-eye view of the creative process that you'll find refreshing and
