Robert is about as Kentucky as they come – he has worked throughout the bluegrass and is even a descendant of Daniel Boone. He has ventured to TN, FL and CA, but returned back to Lexington, Kentucky where he purchased a car repair business. While driving a customer’s vehicle, he came across Passport radio and it took him back to when he was younger. Now he spends time on Saturday taking Passport listeners on a trip to the past.

Tune in every Saturday 10am-2pm to relive the hits from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
