The Pea Green Boat is a show for children of all ages, with stories, songs, poetry, and special guests - two and four-legged, and some with wings.
“The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat...” With its title borrowed from that Edward Lear poem, the Montana Public Radio Pea Green Boat sets sail each weekday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.
In between the stories and songs, guests like Kate Davis from Raptors of the Rockies, and Brian Williams from the Montana Natural History Center cover the Nature Beat. Librarians from the Missoula Public Library share new and classic books every Monday, and the Poetry Club meets once a month.
Listeners can call in requests for birthday songs and favorite songs and stories:
