The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, September 19, 2010

As you might guess from the band's name, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger makes songs that are ornate, fanciful, tuneful, and unusual. It's a collaborative duo featuring Sean Lennon (son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono) and his partner in life and music, Charlotte Kemp Muhl. They play multiple instruments, and sing in harmony about elegant gardens, dystopian futures, striving scientists, a smarmy impresario, and much more. Host David Garland brings them to the WNYC Studio for lively conversation and performances.

To have the best teeth possible your dental experience should start when you are young. Many dentists recommend age 3 because all of the baby teeth are in the mouth by that time, but some pediatric dentists follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists which recommends that a child visit a dentist as early as 6 months of getting the first tooth.

Their such awesome people! Charlotte seems so modest and has such a great voice even not singing. This is a great duo! So amazing. Their music is beautiful

A delayed post: this show was incredible. Their music and lyrics are beautiful and thoughtful and surprising. I could listen to it over and over. And the interview was entertaining from start to finish. Thank you so much from a very satisfied WNYC Member.

Wonderful music. Listening to Sean's thoughts about his connection to his dad through music is heart wrenching.

Your hour with Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl is one of the most charming and entertaining programs of this type I have had the pleasure of hearing. All three of you seemed to be so attuned to each other ... A terrific combination of great interviewer and interviewees. If there is an award for this category of programing, I urge the management of WNYC to nominate this segment for it immediately. "Thank you" to you, David, your staff, and Sean and Charlotte.

P.S. I almost forgot to mention how much I enjoyed the music, too!
