In May of 2014 I was listening to the radio, when Tom Vorhees mentioned that KBCS was looking for a regular host on the Bluegrass Ramble program.  It has always been a dream of mine to host the Ramble.  As a long time listener and member of KBCS; and bluegrass junkie, I jumped at the opportunity!

“I think of bluegrass music as the town square.  Some people want to live downtown at the intersection of Flatt and Scruggs or Bill Monroe Avenue. Other people want to live farther out in the suburbs or off on Yonder Mountain or some other place. But we’re all kind of in the same neighborhood. It just depends on how close to downtown you want to live or if you want to come and visit town once a year. We want to welcome everyone to come and visit. It’s some of the best music in the world.”
-Nancy Cardwell, executive director, International Bluegrass Music Assn. Rolling Stone, 2014
