Street Gang
fullDescription

In advance of the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street, comes Street Gang, Michael Davis's compelling--and often comical--story of the creation and history of the media masterpiece and pop culture landmark, told with the cooperation of one of the show's cofounders, Joan Ganz Cooney. Sesame Street was born as a result of a discussion at Cooney's home about the poor quality of children's programming, and hit the air as a big bang of creative fusion from Jim Henson and company, quickly rocketing to success. Street Gang, traces the evolution of the show from its inspiration in the civil rights movement through its many ups and downs--from Nixon trying to cut off its funding to the rise of Elmo--via the remarkable personalities who have contributed to it, and reveals how it has taught millions of children not only their letters and numbers, but cooperation and fair play, tolerance and self-respect, conflict resolution, and the importance of listening. This is the unforgettable story of five decades of social and cultural change, and the miraculous creative efforts, passion and commitment of writers, producers, directors, animators and puppeteers who have created one of the most influential shows in the history of television. Narrator Caroll Spinney, winner of six Emmy Awards and two Grammys, has received both a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Library of Congress's Living Legend award for his work on "Sesame Street." In 2006, Spinney was honored with the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' Lifetime Achievement Award.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The inside story of the first 40 years of "Sesame Street," narrated by the creator of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, is a treat of nostalgia and insight. Puppeteer Caroll Spinney presents Michael Davis's behind-the-scenes account of this iconic children's program in a comfortable, almost conversational, manner. He navigates the rich detail of the text with clarity and employs a brisk pace that keeps the listener involved. Spinney accomplishes this while maintaining a subtle level of emotion as he speaks of people who were dear friends and co-workers. This unique blend of an author with an intimate knowledge of his subject and a narrator who was directly involved with all the personalities and events provides the listener with a special experience.
