Educator, Performer and Ragtime Expert Peter Bergin joins us this week

Our friend Peter Bergin - ragtime educator and performer - joins us for a fun and fascinating week of music!

This week on Kids Commute, we'll explore the world of ragtime music with an expert guide - Peter Bergin!

Bergin, a local ragtime hero, teaches us all about this catchy music - its origins, what makes it ragtime, and what makes it so popular.

He also plays us some fabulous rags on the piano in IPR's Studio A!

We'll have a rag "time" Quizlet for you, too.

Tune in to Kids Commute weekdays at 7:40 and 3:20, or listen any time at the links!
