Waking up is hard to do, but Pete Bergeron makes it a little more pleasant for us all with his Louisiana French and two hours of the latest releases in Cajun music. Pete grew up on a farm in Acadia Parish and considers music to be his only hobby at that time. Naturally he and his brothers formed a group, first a string band called The Salty Dogs and later a rock group, aptly named The Rhythm Kings. After enlisting in the Navy and later going to college, Pete returned home with a degree in television & radio and joined the workforce. For thirty five years Pete has been an integral part of KRVS's sound from hosting Bonjour Louisiane to broadcasting Festivals Acadiens et Creoles. He's won many awards over the years for his work in the preservation and passing on of Louisiana French music and the language. Most recently, he was honored by Codofil -Agence des Affaires Francophones de Louisiane.
