Bluegrass, Etc. with Frank Hoppe
Frank Hoppe’s Bluegrass, Etc. focuses on traditional bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, pre-WWII country 78s and contemporary old-time recordings. He has presented Bluegrass and Old-Time music to listeners in the Los Angeles area over the KCSN airwaves for nearly 30 years, starting in 1984. Frank began his radio career at Reed College in the early 1970s, although his tastes have evolved since then.
A college librarian by day, Frank lives in the Los Angeles area and enjoys playing fiddle for dances, kitchen junkets, farmer’s markets, wineries, jam sessions, and wherever else folks will put up with it. He has organized dances, served on the board or the California Traditional Music Society, and been on staff at music camps and dance weekends in California. Frank also contributed a regular column to The Old Time Herald on Old-Time Radio.
