We talked with Katy Tessman Stanoch about her new (and first!) children's book "Our Mama is a Beautiful Garden." Katy is a longtime songwriter and musician based in the Twin Cities, but her life took a different direction when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She found no books to be able to guide her two young sons through the experience as she worked through treatment and side effects of treatment. So, she wrote one! It was fun to have Katy in the studio not only to celebrate her health, but also to hear her picks for her "Songs of Strength and Support" soundtrack that got her through treatment. We also welcomed The Roe Family Singers to the studio for a live Round-Up and heard new music from Amos Lee and the new Red Hot + Fela tribute.
