Music for everyone.
Young at Heart with Lisa Mathews aired on 89.7 WTMD every Saturday at 8 a.m. from March 2017 - June 2022.
You can still catch Lisa with Milkshake, or doing a Shake It Up Jam!, her live kindie music dance party.
Shake It Up Jam!
When you have a great voice, use it. That’s exactly what the multifaceted Lisa Mathews does.
In the studio recording a voiceover or singing a jingle, fronting her band or chatting with a classroom of kids, Lisa doesn’t waste it. Lisa has spent most of her adult life in rock bands, including the popular alt-rock group Love Riot, and written music that has found its way onto TV shows and movies. She’s the dynamic front person for the wildly popular, Grammy-nominated kids’ rock band Milkshake, whose music has been featured on PBS KIDS, Nick Jr. and Emmy-Award winning “ToddWorld” cartoon. Lisa is also a Wolf Trap-trained Teaching Artist in Maryland and Virginia schools, working alongside teachers to integrate arts strategies into the curriculum.

Why Young at Heart?
“I wanted Young at Heart to fit with WTMD and its beautifully indie perspective,” Mathews says. “I’d like to think we’re at our best when we’re young at heart — when we have a youthful outlook on life no matter what our age. I still like to ride the roller coaster, jump in rain puddles and eat toasted marshmallows. So listening to songs about taking a trip into space or the wonders of rainbows or eating lots of grapes rocks my world, and I hope it makes listeners smile while they start their day together.”
