Gene says he likes all forms of music, with a particular love for Bluegrass/Country, Gospel, Cajun, and some Rockabilly thrown in. He is still very active in radio but not as much as he used to be, he adds. In Gene's own words,
"I have done it all for many years. Now I let the younger folks do it and I do what I can when I can."

tolerable mandolin, and, he and his wife, Willa, are part of a band called "Split Rail". Walter and Willa, co-host another Bluegrass show on Sun. afternoon from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM, on yet another St. Louis radio station.

work schedule. Terry attended Lindenwood University from 1975-1979
and served at different times as KCLC's Student Station Manager,

1988-1993 and an Americana/Acoustic/Folk show on that station from
1995-1998. Terry was also that station's Program Director in 1993 and

Your Thursday night host and native of Pennsylvania, Larry grew up listening to and attending the WWVA Wheeling West Va. Jamboree. Influenced heavily by Doc & Chickie Williams and all the Border Riders as well as Wilma Lee & Stony Cooper, Hank Williams, and Flatt & Scruggs, he is a lifetime lover of Old-time Country, Bluegrass, and Irish music. He has been a member of the M.A.B.C. (Mo. Area Bluegrass Committee) since 1991, is a member of S.P.B.G.M.A., O.B.G.M.A., and Tri-State Bluegrass Assoc. Has been involved with KCLC at Lindenwood Univ. since Mar. of 1993. Likes to keep Bluegrass traditional, (no drums, no electric). His favorite type of music would have to be Bluegrass Gospel. Favorite artist is Charlie Waller and the Country Gentlemen. Some of his songs, says Larry, such as "Even Now", and "Legend Of The Rebel Soldier" give him goosebumps.
Larry plays the Guitar but not enough, he jokes, to be considered a picker. He says he loves to play Bluegrass on the radio, and especially loves it when he makes BG converts or when someone calls in and says they happened to catch his show and love the music.
Larry says he loves BG because there is a strong tie through it back to our ancestors. If you can imagine your Uncle or Grandfather sitting on the porch of their cabin picking and singing, it makes you realize what we are doing today is not that much different from what they did music-wise 100 years ago.
Some of Larry's other hobbies include Civil War reading and research. Being a computer professional, Larry also maintains the Bluegrass portion of the KCLC/Lindenwood University Web Page on the Internet, as well as maintaining the Bluegrass Library of over 1800 CD's in a database for access by the other DJs.. He also tries to get out to as many Bluegrass Festivals as possible during the year. If you would like to get in touch with him, his Email address is email@example.com
Born several years ago in Southern Missouri. Has always enjoyed Bluegrass Music, even though, back when he started listening, it was called "Hillbilly Music". Has always enjoyed Country and Western music, too, but somebody killed it, so Bluegrass was the only true music left. What a break.
Drove "Over the Road" trucks for 35 years, with the best music to keep him company all night. Sure made it a lot easier. Bob says he knew he wasn't the only listener, because when he would stop at a Truck Stop, the other drivers would say, "Did you hear so & so play that Fiddle-Dobro-Guitar-Banjo?" He still trys to listen to as much Bluegrass as possible, but live shows and festivals are really the best way to enjoy Bluegrass, he says. Has been helping Larry Reighard out on his Thursday night Bluegrass show for about a year.
Larry has been a part of KCLC since 1995, when he was Gene Robert's co-host. Larry has a long history of radio broadcasting, having worked for several St. Louis radio stations, and he currently co-hosts a show called "Country Function and Bluegrass Junction" on another station on Tues. mornings from 9:00 to Noon, again, along with Gene Roberts. His professional gig is hosting the evening (6:00 PM - 10:00) Country radio show at KWRE in Warrenton, Mo.
