Do you remember the daffy, colorful, sing-along sound of Bubblegum Music–“Yummy Yummy Yummy,” “Green Tambourine” and “Sugar Sugar”? For a few incredible years starting in the late 1960s, top producers and session musicians made some of the most sophisticated, unexpected and downright infectious pop music ever heard for an audience of little kids.
Join Kim Cooper and David Smay, co-editors of the book Bubblegum Music is the Naked Truth: The Dark History of Prepubescent Pop from the Banana Splits to Britney Spears, and contributors Becky Ebenkamp and Gene Sculatti, for an audio-visual celebration of the history and mythology of this under-appreciated musical genre, and the Saturday morning cartoons where many of the most memorable songs debuted.
After the presentation, copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
The event is free. Arrive on time to ensure you get a seat.
