‘Backseat Baby?’ Our Young Fans Take The Front Seat

Now that Halloween 2013 has come and gone and all of our respective social media feeds are full of costume winners (and losers), we thought it might be fun to share an email we got from a listener late Halloween night.

My son went as Tom Ashbrook for Halloween, and I thought you might like a picture. We had a bunch of fun with it and it was a big hit in the neighborhood.

NPR likes to call listeners with a childhood public radio habit “backseat babies,” but this particular baby seems to be ready to report from the front seat as is.

Thanks for the fun picture, Ian! And Happy (After) Halloween everybody!
