Host profile: Richard Haas

I started out like my father, excited by the music of Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman. Then the Beatles, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell came along. Like a lot of people, I guess, my first slight exposure to “Bluegrass” music was the Earl Scruggs Beverly Hillbillies theme song. My first real exposure was “Ancient Tones” by Ricky Skaggs followed by a journey of very enjoyable discovery to the single taproot of the tree, William Smith Monroe - aided by Earl Karlsen and the loyal listeners of The Bluegrass Express.

A photographer by heredity, I most enjoy music that takes me somewhere visually.
