How we chose our name
Just about everyone we talk to asks us how we came up with the name Walking Frog Records. Actually, we chose the name from the title list of the very first CD recording we produced on our label, "The Walking Frog" by K. L. King, appeared on "Heritage Of The March-Vol. 1" by The Washington Winds. Mr. King wrote this wonderful piece as a "clown walk-about" for the Barnum & Bailey's Circus. It was published by C. L. Barnhouse Company, a 125 year old band music publisher located in Oskaloosa, Iowa. C. L. Barnhouse Company owns and operates Walking Frog Records.
