- Host, Classical Music
Jeff Esworthy has been with MPR since 1996. A public radio veteran with more than 25 years behind the microphone, Jeff has hosted everything from jazz to folk to progressive rock. Jeff is a hobbyist musician and minor-league collector of musical instruments from around the world. He has a long-time interest in the classical music of Northern India and plays banjo, fiddle and bad guitar in an old-time square-dance band. Jeff was the overnight disc jockey at MPR for the better part of a decade and is very grateful these days to be seeing the sunrise at the beginning of his day instead of the end.
