Dr. Bob to Guest Host Sounds Good

Jan 9, 2013

Dr. Bob Lochte, host of The Eisenhower Hour, returns to WKMS after a two-year hiatus. Dr. Bob will sit-in for host Tracy Ross during Sounds Good, 11 a.m. -1 p.m., the second Friday of each month beginning January 11.

The first hour of the program is dedicated to conversations with Murray State University faculty, discussing their areas of expertise. "We have so many bright, articulate personalities on campus. I thought this would be a great opportunity to showcase their talents." Ted Belue of MSU’s History Department talks with Dr. Bob about the roots of American music this month.

The second hour is Fifties music by request from The Eisenhower Hour library of more than 1000 songs. "We'll take requests on Twitter, Facebook, and by email and build the playlist from scratch."

Dr. Bob Lochte is Professor and Chair of The Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business, Department of Journalism and Mass Communications.
