Good-bye and Thank You to all my listeners! You all gave me a very precious gift!

Longtime KCSN program host Frank Hoppe was notified of the cancellation of his program, Bluegrass, Etc. Monday, September 11, 2017, effective immediately, as a consequence of the agreement made between KCSN and KSBR to consolidate their programming.

His program focused on traditional bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, pre-WWII country 78s and contemporary old-time. Old-time is a style of country music dominant before the formulation of bluegrass by Bill Monroe and others in the 1930s and 40s. This show provided the only substantial Sunday morning gospel programming on the station. It had a broad national and international listenership and was influential in supporting a resurgence of interest by the bluegrass world in old-time styles and repertoire.

Frank Hoppe began his career at KCSN in 1984, doing a Monday morning folk show under then station manager Mark Humphrey. When KCSN’s format changed to largely classical music programming in 1989, both Humphrey and Hoppe left.

In 1993, Hoppe was brought back to KCSN to take the place of departing bluegrass host Howard Yearwood and remained there till he did his last show this past Sunday, September 10.
