CONGRATULATIONS to longtime listener Alex from Quebec, Canada who won the drawing for the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra’s CD “Step With Pep!” It will go out in the mail tomorrow. I’m sorry everyone who sent an email requesting the CD couldn’t win, but everyone can easily get a copy from the orchestra’s website www.PecherineRagtime.com or at www.RivermontRecords.com.
