Submit Your Greeting For Kids Commute

Aug 24, 2017

Are you tuned in to Classical IPR weekday mornings around 7:40 for Kids Commute?  We start out the Kids Commute with the voices it's intended for - kids!  We'd love to hear more of your voices.  

Here's how to hear YOUR voice on the Kids Commute:

  1. SUBMIT YOUR OWN RECORDING.  Record your Kids' Commute greeting on a cell phone or computer microphone, and send the audio file as an e-mail attachment to: ipr@interlochen.org .
  2. LEAVE YOUR RECORDING ON OUR VOICE MAIL! Call IPR at 1-800-441-9422 and ask to be transferred to Kate Botello's voice mail.  Leave your Kids' Commute greeting as a recording, and we'll take care of the rest.

What should your greeting say?

"Hi, my name is [YOUR FIRST NAME], I'm [YOUR AGE] years old, and you're listening to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio!"

Don't worry if you goof up or it isn't perfect - we'll take care of all of that.  Parents - sometimes it helps to have kids say the phrases a few words at a time, especially if they're very small.  Don't worry about long pauses in between - we can put them all together into one phrase.  

And, for young musicians, we have an opportunity for you to perform! Record yourself playing the Kids Commute Theme with your intro!  In that case, your intro would go like this:

"Hi, I'm [YOUR FIRST NAME], I'm [YOUR AGE] years old, and I play [YOUR INSTRUMENT]. You're listening to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio!" 

Then... You'd play our theme! We have the sheet music for you, below. We've placed it in several ranges to make it easier for you depending on the instrument you play.  Here's what the theme sounds like on a piano:
