gregbellsm2Meet Greg Bell… the host of KIXI’s When Radio Was“Over the past few years, I have heard from many folks well under Jack Benny’s age (39), who tell me how surprised and thrilled they are to discover how cool these shows are at 50, 60 even 70 years after they originally aired,” says Greg.  “As the new host of ‘When Radio Was’, I hope I can continue to bring these wonderful nuggets from the past to a whole new audience, while also entertaining the long-term Classic radio fans as well.”Growing up in Central Illinois, nearly smack dab between St. Louis and Chicago, allowed Greg to enjoy both rich and rewarding radio markets. As a matter of fact, in one of those quirky coincidences, he developed his appreciation for Classic radio and historical trivia by listening to shows hosted by two of his professional predecessors — the original “When Radio Was” host, Art Fleming, and the gentleman he now takes over the reins from on that show, Chuck Schaden.
