Hello, everybody, welcome back to the show. This week is a tribute to Mr Rogers. I’ve one uncommon tape on Mr Rogers in my library of surprising information, and after I share this with individuals I current it as “a facet of Mr Rogers you’ll have by no means heard.” Most listeners agree: It is a very unbelievable album. Particularly, that is Fred Rogers translating the complexity of loss of life and ache into serving to mother and father cope with an enormous worry: The loss of life of their children. He additionally relates comparable consolation to children themselves. And then you definately meet the youngsters, who’re all great, completely happy, and seemingly extra conscious of the second than many adults thrice their age. I am posting it this week as a result of we’d like extra compassion on the earth, presently.
That is what the 1983 cassette “Therapeutic with Love” is all about, and its obscure placement within the Mr Rogers discography solely makes it extra attention-grabbing. This wasn’t work for PBS. It was seemingly solely supposed for the sufferers and their mother and father, and copies of the tape have been produced in small numbers. There isn’t any approach this matter would have made it onto his present (although Bruce Haack on Mr Rogers is a favorite in that category)
This tape celebrates the phrase of Dr Gerald Jampolsky, who’s a kindred spirit of Fred Rogers. You’re launched to Jampolsky, his group of sufferers, their mother and father, after which encounter some scary moments with a dad or mum grieving a useless little one. Dr Jampolsky manages a cellphone hotline for terminally ailing youngsters and consoles mother and father, each these grieving a loss of life or managing stress, and Jampolsky’s love and care for everybody is to be admired. Hear the entire tape here.
After all, we needed to make a tribute to all of this, and that may be present in Facet A for this week, “Mr Roger’s Metaphysical Phone Hotline” together with a number of the extra intense Mr Rogers sentences I’ve ever heard. This is one: “Do you contemplate loss of life an enemy?” – Wild.
