"We're All Kids On This Bus"
This wonderful album is the result of almost three years of all-volunteer effort to make a special collection of great children's music. The songs are all original compositions by Montana musicians – fun and entertaining, not just for children, but for “kids” of all ages!

THE CHILDREN'S CD STORY
We started in the summer of 1996 as a collaborative project with Mike Liedle of Valtron Recording Studio.
The idea was to produce an album of all-original music to raise funds for children in need. We sent out 4000 flyers all over Montana, made Public Service Announcements on the radio and obtained newspaper coverage throughout the state inviting musicians to submit their songs.
We received over 40 submissions, and began a challenging selection process using a structured criteria and a panel of experts (us and a group of children!). From these we selected the 22 original songs that make up the album. We brought the musicians to Valtron Studios in Helena, Montana, and spent many months singing, playing, producing, recording, mixing, and mastering.
The result is this very special collection of great songs, all original compositions. The Lost & Foundation has raised over $13,000 from sales of the album. All proceeds either have been given to children requiring medical help or have been invested to continue helping kids in need.
