I love anything that gets kids playing music with instruments and not just sampling music but creating music”.  Little Steven cohosting the show at the Cutting Room with Mark Rivera and Ken speaks out about Rockit Academy ” These kids are about the best i’ve ever seen . My wife Maureen discovered this thing and turned me on to it, my friend Richie Russo is also involved with them and said come on down and check it out. I expected kids to be OK, you want to be encouraging, like you said the kids who are actually playing  instruments these days, it’s a miracle. I didn’t expect them to be this good”.  Ken introduces the Rockit Academy band by saying live on WNEW FM ” When your friend Little Steven Vanzandt you got to hear these kids play so now live on 104.3  at the Cutting Room, Tori, Rob, Jordan, Mike Jacob and Sam, I’m not even going to tell you what they’re going to sing.
