Bruce Reidenbach has been a volunteer jazz host at WBOI/WBNI since 1983. His favorite music is anything that has a lyrical melody with a bit of underlying complication to the rhythm and harmony, typically found in 50s and 60s bebop. More modern styles from Weather Report and the Pat Metheny Group are also a favorite. In real life, Bruce is an electrical engineer and when not listening to music enjoys football (American and European, i.e., soccer), Formula One auto racing, and is a loyal Purdue Boilermaker alumni and fan.
