PLAY NOW: The Opposite of the Baby Crying

Dec 4, 2013

Whether you're sitting in the bath (or you wish you were), entertaining friends, or perhaps looking to relax after the baby has finally stopped crying -- Interlochen Public Radio's Kate Botello has the perfect Classical playlist for you. Play the music from your computer anytime. All you need is a free Spotify account.

PLAY NOW! Curated Classical

We asked a listener with a new baby what she most wanted from classical music. Her response? "I want something that's the opposite of the baby crying." We hope this fits the bill.
