As Muppet fans know, September 24 is a special day in Muppet history. Not only is it Jim Henson's birthday (he would've been 82 today), it is also Steve Whitmire's birthday who would take over for Jim Henson as Kermit the Frog beginning in 1990 through 2016. In honor of these two wonderful men, celebrate life and the people who make a difference in yours.

In honor of Jim, we're playing Jim Henson's most beloved songs on Muppet Central Radio all-day on Radionomy. Below are links for listening to our Jim Henson musical tribute.

Happy birthday to two wonderful Ernie's and Kermit the Frog's! I'm still honored to have gotten the chance to meet Steve this year.

This is what I put on Facebook: Today is the birthday of 2 people who played Kermit the Frog and Ernie, Jim Henson and Steve Whitmire. To celebrate them, here's a pretty cool video that someone made taking two versions of Rainbow Connection, the original version from the Muppet Movie and the version from the 2011 Muppet movie. Happy birthday, Jim and Steve!
