Doc's first involvement with radio was as a teenager (a long time ago)on local radio in Ithaca, New York. As a musician, playing and listening to music has always been a big part of Doc's life. As a long time public radio supporter, Doc is "jazzed" to be a part of KSJD bringing the listening community music from his classic and current collection which spans more than 5 decades, and he has the 45's to prove it.
As a young (11y.o.) 5 string banjo player Doc was brought to bluegrass at a time when the classic masters of bluegrass such as Bill Monroe and Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs were at the height of their careers. At the same time American folk music was in it's hey-day with groups such as The Kingston Trio, The Limelighters, Peter Paul & Mary, The Journeymen, Simon & Garfunkle, Joan Biaz, Judy Collins and other musicians that many of today's teenagers do not know.
Doc's Roadhouse on KSJD Doc strives to bring a variety of music to the KSJD listening audience. With a focus on bluegrass, Doc spins "Americana"...(which Doc says is a catch-all category for a number of Genres including Bluegrass, Folk, Country & Swing, Blues, Roots and more).
