DJ since: 1997

I have been co-hosting Two For The Blues since January 1997. I initially did the show with Bonnie Kalmbach who originated the show in January 1976. After she retired from the airwaves, Dave Leucinger took over the co-hosting duties. Growing up in Northern Wisconsin, I was first introduced to the blues on AM radio in the 1950s when Slim Harpo and Jimmy Reed crossed over to the pop record charts. In the 1960s, British Invasion bands were playing blues tunes I liked but it took me years before I heard the original versions. I remember the first time I heard Howlin’ Wolf. I didn’t like it. It was just too raw compared to versions done by rock bands. In the 1970s I tired of much of the music played on commercial radio. I began looking for the origins of rock & roll and in the process rediscovered the blues. It was music that spoke to me. Soon it became a passion and I’ve never looked back. I read about and listen to blues music from the entire recording history of this music which now spans 10 decades. My show is an extension of my exploration of the blues which continues to this day. Over the years I’ve had opportunities to interview many of the blues greats and some of these interviews may be found at [WEB LINK HERE]. I play music from all eras of the blues and all styles. I have a special love of the 1940s and 1950s jump blues styles that so heavily influenced what came to be called rock and roll and that music usually opens each of my shows. I hope at least a few of my listeners will discover music that means as much to them as it does to me.
