Mark Grube

Host of Mystery Train

I got started in radio at SUNY Fredonia at WCVF and stayed with it after college as a volunteer at WRUR, and, for a while, at WJZR. Meanwhile, I worked part time at WXXI's Reachout Radio and 'produced' Doug Curry's other show (I pressed record on the reel to reel and edited tape with a razor blade). I also had a jazz show called What's New for 10 or so years. Now I host Mystery Train and ask for money during the pledge drives.
