Covid Kindie: the MEGA-THREAD!!!

Hi y'all!

Sagan from the kids' music radio show Radio Active Kids here. On my show I play all sorts of independent kids' music, also known as "kindie." I'm extremely impressed by the kindie community's response to the covid-19 pandemic! Over the past year and a half, I've played more than 150 brand new releases that have something to do with handwashing/hygiene, Covid-19, and/or helping to get through it all, together! I'm sure there are many more songs to come, but I now proudly present the MEGA-THREAD of new #CovidKindie (plus two awesome #WizardRock songs!), in alphabetical order! I've provided links to the songs on Playtime Playlist where applicable, and on other platforms when that's the only option. Enjoy--and please please please share widely!!! I'll be continually updating this list as more songs come out, so please check back regularly!
