Catch It By The Tail

Sundays 3PM

Presented by Sally Zwartz and Soumia Bella

Catch it by the tail banner_JUN2016

Catch it by the tail is an hour of songs, stories and poems for young and old but in particular children aged 4 and up. It’s the only program on Eastside broadcast specifically for kids.
Catch it by the tail features classic and contemporary content and includes some things kids probably haven’t heard before. It also features content produced especially for the program: Australian authors reading their work, stories and poems read by actors and as much audio made with kids themselves as we can manage.
It doesn’t underestimate its audience and it isn’t selling anything, to kids or their parents. It’s screen-free! It’s perfect Sunday afternoon stuck-in-traffic or lazy-afternoon-at-home or general quiet time (and sometimes loud time) entertainment.
To find out what’s coming up on the program, keep in touch on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/catchitbythetaileastside/
If you know a kid who’d like to send in a joke, story, song, request, message or anything else, go for it! Email catchitbythetail@eastsidefm.org or leave a message on the Catch it by the tail facebook page.
Sally Zwartz is a writer, interviewer and audio content-maker with an MA in children’s literature. She’s passionate about reading, writing and music and has a long history of involvement in projects that encourage kids to develop that passion too. She believes every kid should have access to great stories, poems and music because they help them to be happy.

Soumia Bella has a background in screen and copywriting but has recently fallen in love with all things audio. A devourer of podcasts and stories, she is working on a website and audio series of her own about health and young people.
