are some comments from just a few of Linda's fans:
Julia, a teacher: "I'm a first grade teacher now and I still find myself
humming the tunes to songs you taught me all those years ago.... I just wanted
you to know what an impact you had on my childhood and my childhood memories.
Katherine, a grown-up: "I just wanted to send my thanks for your great music.
I heard you perform for my class ... who knows how long ago. I have your "In Your
Overalls" cassette, which is getting worn in spots. Now I'm a "grown-up" and lately
I've been feeling a bit depressed. I came across your tape last night and realized
that I could still remember most of the words, even without listening to songs.
I did listen to the tape in my car on my commute to work this morning and singing
along really lifted my spirits. Your songs take me right back to childhood and
a simpler time."
Ryan, a student: "Thank you for teaching me how to sing all the songs I now
know. I sing them at home and in the shower. I sing them most of the time but
my mom gets kind of tired of me singing them over and over. Thank you for making
me a better singer. You're the best."
Anita, a student: "Thank you for singing to us. The song I liked best was
No More Animals, and I even like how you play the guitar. I even enjoy your singing.
an anonymous student: "It was nice of you to sing to us. You are a special
lady. You are funny to us. You play the guitar loud and nice. You teach us so
many songs we can't even sing them so fast."
Mary Jane, a teacher: "Terrific! I haven't had this much fun since a '60s
Pete Seeger concert."
Susan, the Child Life Supervisor at UC Davis Medical Center: "Your songs reach
every member of the audience in a different way, whether it's the challenge of
the hand motions or the memories your lyrics evoke for those of us who fondly
remember our childhoods."
Miss Monroe, a teacher: "Thank you so much for sharing your songs, your enthusiasm,
and your sense of wonderment with us. The world you showed us through your songs
is one we often lose sight of. Thank you for reminding me of the magic of life."
