Kids Commute

Monday-Friday, 7:40am

Join Classical IPR's Kate Botello each weekday at about 7:40 a.m. for the award-winning Kids Commute.

We explore lots of different kinds of classical music with themes like PiratesVillains and Circus Music. The goal is to show that classical music isn't fancy - it's just music!

Answer our weekly Quizlet question correctly and win a Kids Commute Prize. Text your answer with your name and address to (231) 237-7482.

New in 2020! Every month, we'll draw from all the winners' names for a BIG PRIZE: a month's supply of snacks from our friends at GoGo squeeZ!
