Groove Juice Special
Your host Pop Freeling starts your Sunday Morning off with a superfun show for kids and playful people of all ages. The Groove Juice will be made each week with an original mix around a theme like Super Powers, Space, Dreams, Food and Gratitude. You’ll hear great music, interviews, special guests, stories, birthday shout outs and upcoming family events. Kids have access to radio, whether their pulling out an old transistor, getting stuck in the car with the family or tuning in on a live stream. Give them some groove juice every Sunday and it’ll save their soul!
