#Fact
1Wrote and sang some of Schoolhouse Rock's most recognizable tunes including Interplanet Janet, The Great American Melting Pot, and A Noun is a Person, Place, or Thing. She had a rather fortuitous, unconventional start. McCaffrey and McCall hired her as a secretary when she was just 22, and right out of college. Bored with her daily typing tasks, Ahrens often brought a guitar to the office to play during down time. One day, producer George Newall heard her strumming and asked her to try writing a song for the series. "The Preamble" was a hit and she wrote more songs for Schoolhouse Rock. This led to her getting more jobs as a freelance composer and singer which really launched her career and eventually included award-winning work for Broadway and movies.
