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.

The Mystery Train Christmas Show, Part 1, will be on this Sunday at 4pm. Passengers include Ella and Elvis, Wilco and Wynton and Bland and Brubeck, among others. There's even a tune from the Grinch's girlfriend.

It's becoming a holiday tradition to rival the Grinch. For the second year running, after more than a decade in the vaults, the December 1978 Austin City Limits performance by Tom Waits is on the TV again. Tune in to WXXI this Saturday at midnight. After all, it just wouldn't feel like the holidays without hearing "Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis."

Effective immediately, Mystery Train will pull out of the station Sundays at 4pm on WRUR. The 6pm Wednesday broadcast remains as is, as does the usual routing and passenger list.
