I am happy to share the musical soundtrack of my life with you my community. Music to sing, dance and cry to. Please join me for The Smiling Iris And The Bouncing Bee Thursdays 10am to 2pm. You will love it if you're 2 or 94 and everything in between. Music for all generations from around the world.

Welcome to "Katherine's Carousel of Musicals", where a merry-go-round of melody and magic wait for you! Each Sunday morning, between 9 and 10, Katherine will present a selection of songs from musicals, and each new show features a different theme; you'll be able to hear songs from musicals that were seen and heard on Broadway, in movies, and even on T.V.
Sometimes, an entire musical will be broadcast, and most of the songs and the synopsis will be presented, in synopsis-song-synopsis fashion, over the course of a few Sundays, so that you can truly understand the musical story that you're listening to.
Frank joined the broadcasting staff at KFOK in 2017, after a career in the audio/video business for almost 40 years.
Music has been a major part of his life since childhood, and the quest for a live concert experience in his living room resulted in a constant quest for better speakers, more accurate sound and the sharing of that experience with friends and family. It's the sharing part of the experience and the love for the music that prompted him to become a broadcaster. When you tune in Frank's show, you will hear not only great blues sprinkled with some classic rock, but he will also share some of the stories and anecdotes about the artists themselves. His show, HWY 49 Blues & Tunes can be heard on Tuesdays from 10:00 am to noon.

Cathy plays from the extensive KFAT collection, as well as offering selections from her vast personal collection of FAT-like music. The Lard Lives on at KFOK!!!

I have been collecting this genre of music for over 50 years. It’s been a passion of mine & a labor of love. I will also provide information based on fact or an experience I might have had from the artists I feature such as a concert I might have attended.
