Robert McBride: Senior Announcer

Robert McBrideI have my mom to thank for getting me interested in music and for being the first person to suggest radio as a career. I have both my parents to thank for making possible my degree in music composition, and for patiently supporting me, one way or another, through the many years I played in rock bands. While I failed to become a rock star, I still manage to compose occasionally. After thirty years in radio I still enjoy it! I’m on the air weekday afternoons from 1:00 to 6:00 and Saturday nights from 8:00 to 10:00, when I preside over Club Mod, a program devoted to modern music both old and new. I also enjoy hosting preconcert conversations for the Oregon Symphony and other public speaking opportunities. I’ve been part of the All Classical Portlandia team since 2000, thus setting a new personal record for employment longevity.
