Steve Martin's children's book on Morning Edition

I'm a big Steve Martin fan, are you? Even though I didn't get to interview ol' Steve, this morning NPR did a story on Steve Martin's new children's book "The Alphabet from A to Y With Bonus Letter Z".

You can listen here to the interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep. You can hear Morning Edition every weekday on KAXE starting at 5am. And tune in for Weekend Edition on Saturday and Sundays from 7-9am.

Maybe someday Steve Martin will be our guest on Realgoodwords!
