Belfast musician, mime and children’s performer Scot Cannon has started a new radio show on WERU Community Radio. “The WERU Family Radio Hour” will air the first Saturday of every month from 10 to 11 a.m.; the next is Sept. 3. The show is a combination of music, radio theater and interviews and recordings of local Maine children.

The most important component of the show are the recordings of children who play music or just do interesting things. Local children’s authors also will be on the show. Cannon can do remote recordings or record in his Belfast studio.

For this week’s show, Cannon visited the Fiddle Camp in Monroe  and interviewed Kylie Hinkley from Jonesport. At age 13, she runs the Jonesport library with her mother, Heidi. Kylie also has been a constant volunteer for her community.

In past shows, Cannon has had as his guest fiddler Hila Shooter, pianist Clayton Clemetson  and singer McKenna Sullivan, all from Belfast. He is looking for great ideas and children to be on the show. If you or anyone you know would
