KUAC Welcomes Bob Fischer

KUAC Welcomes Bob FischerFor Bob Fischer, the new host for Afternoon Concert on Mondays, volunteering for KUAC is a huge part of his life and passion. Several years ago, when Bob found a need for widening the Baroque classical music library, he purchased and donated CDs. After recently retiring from a 50-year career with the National Weather Service, Bob will have more time to give to KUAC listeners. For decades, Bob has hosted Music of the Golden Ages which airs on the non-school board Meeting Tuesdays at 7 p.m. He will continue to produce this show for KUAC. You can hear Bob Fischer as the newest regular Afternoon Concert host Mondays 1-3 p.m. “KUAC is proud to have wonderful volunteers and thankful to folks like Bob who give their time and extensive musical knowledge to enrich our listening experience,” said Lori Neufeld, KUAC FM volunteer coordinator and music director.
