Bob Christiansen

  • Host, Classical Music

A founding voice of Classical 24, Bob Christiansen has managed to combine his knowledge of classical music and history with a sharp wit and a talent for foreign languages into a radio career since 1966. While studying the ramifications of the "Time of Troubles" on the Grand Duchy of Moscow, he led a secret life as the evening man on the Northern Illinois University radio station. After 14 years with classical stations in Phoenix, Bob teamed with Bill Morelock at Northwest Public Radio at Washington State University in 1987 to create the nationally syndicated Bob and Bill.
