The New York wing of The MuppetCast (Jarrid and Teresa) takes over this week, presenting the audio from a recent screening event at the Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI). The event is called “Jim Henson and the Music of Joe Raposo” and is just fantastic. Mr. Raposo’s son Nick also joins presenter Craig Shemin to speak about his father.

The Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI)
The Museum of the Moving Image exists to expand public understanding and appreciation of the art, history, technique and technology of film, television, and digital media by collecting, preserving, and providing access to moving-image related artifacts via multimedia exhibitions and educational programming.
The Jim Henson Legacy
Established in 1992, The Jim Henson Legacy was created by family and friends in response to the extraordinary interest in the life and work of Jim Henson. The organization is dedicated to preserving and perpetuating Jim Henson’s contributions to the worlds of puppetry, television, motion pictures, special effects and media technology.
Joe Raposo was the principal music composer for Sesame Street, a brilliant musician who penned classic songs like “Sing”, “C is for Cookie”, and “Bein’ Green.” He is largely responsible for the early “sound” of Sesame Street music.
