My dad did try to connect us to all sorts of music through his record collection. I have a separate pile of records filled with just music for children. I’ve mentioned the Teddy Bears Picnic album in a previous show.

But my parents made sure we weren’t only listening to the classic children’s tunes, they made sure we knew what real classical music was. And they bought records like this one that helped make that connection at a young age.

So get ready for a musical journey spanning more than two centuries as the young ones are introduced to some great composers in Volume 149: Classics for Kids.
