The critics are raving about Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie, Randy Kaplan’s child-friendly versions of country blues and ragtime numbers from the 1920s, '30s and '40s, available now from myKaZoo Music, the new children's label from Universal Music Enterprises. myKaZoo just launched two exciting ways to enjoy one of Randy's witty blues-for-kids songs.

"What's old is new again with Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie. This is offbeat, smart and funny, funny, funny!"

"This CD is absolutely fun and hilarious for the whole family... We moved the coffee table and my children danced till they dropped... (They) laughed up a storm while dancing and learning about their great American musical heritage."
