Name of Show - “Best of Bluegrass”
(based on the letters in my name, B-O-B)

Host: Bob Mitchell

e-mail address is bobmitchelldj@twc.com

BACKGROUND: DJ since 2006.

Awarded a Lifetime Membership in The International Bluegrass Music Museum as a token of appreciation for five years as a volunteer DJ on Radio Bluegrass International.

Over 70 artists have been studio guests, including: Dailey and Vincent – Claire Lynch - Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out – Becky Buller – The Lonesome River Band - Michael Cleveland - Donna Ulisse - Steve Gulley - Tony Holt & The Wildwood Valley Boys - Kati Penn & New Town – David Davis & The Warrior River Boys – Special Consensus - David Parmley - Sideline - Nathan Stanley - The Roys - Rebecca Frazier – Jim Smoak (Bill Monroe’s banjo player) – and Al Hawkes (inducted Bluegrass pioneer).

There have been over 50 unique two hour programs. Examples:

There have been numerous 2 hour tribute shows designed to showcase the life and music of a specific artists. Examples: Bill Monroe - Earl Scruggs - Ralph Stanley - Mac Wiseman - Jim and Jessie McReynolds - George Jones - and Liz Meyer (with all Canadian and European artists).

Was a music reviewer for Bluegrass Now, Bluegrass Music Profiles and Louisville Music News. Was featured DJ of the Month in Bluegrass Music Profiles in 2010.

In 2009 I interviewed Pete Goble for the Bluegrass Museum’s video oral history project.

I work hard to ensure each radio program is the best possible representation of the music as well as the best possible representation of any radio station’s public image.

An e-mail copy of each week’s playlist will be mailed to you.

Program is recorded in the studios of WFPK-FM (public radio, Louisville, KY).

If you broadcast the show, please provide me with your city and state, (or country), a contact name, and e-mail address. As a "reporting station" for Bluegrass Today's weekly survey, I am required to know your station's name, call letters, day and time of broadcast, and appropriate internet link (if any).

I am flexible and eager to work with you. If you have any questions or concerns, let’s discuss. My home phone number & postal address are available upon request.
