But on weekends John transforms his persona to K.C. Music Man John Christopher offering fans the sounds of the greatest records ever pressed.

John calls the program THE NEON BEAT airing all day Saturday’s through noon and on

    You would have to go pretty far afield to find anybody any better than Doris Day on any song she ever sang.

    Sure sounds like something I’d enjoy. Too bad that there’s little of this sort of music format left on radio. I’ll be listening this weekend.

    Somebody told me about this program a few weeks ago but didn’t have specifics. Thanks Jack for giving us the heads up on Neon Beat. I’ll be tuning in.

    My little 83 year old mother has enjoyed your program sooo much. She does not have internet access and has asked me to see if there is some way to get an address to send a letter asking that you be kept on the radio. She loves the music and it brings back so many wonderful memories for her Thanks for making her so happy.

    Why did you go a Hispanic format? Now there is nothing on the radio for us Baby Boomers that enjoy music from the 40S, 50s, 60s, and 70s. I did look forawar to Saturdays and tuning you in all day. It is not the same playing CDs of the music of my life as I liked to be surprised with the diverse range of music played by John Christopher and his commentary. I feel like my generation has been written off.

    I do like Mexican music and do tune this in on the AM dial when I am in the mood for this music. My problem is that there are several Hispanic stations already providing this music and now as stated above there is nothing on our local airwaves that provides us Baby Boomers with our music.

    Disappointed in KC

    LOVE the music
    I enjoy your program, Neon Beat, so very much!! I really wish you were on everyday. I’m glad to know that you are on the AM side also, as I have trouble keeping the FM station – there is another station that shares 102.9 and sometimes they are all I can hear. Thanks again for the wonderful music and the great information about the music. If you have time, could you please play “Scotch and Soda” again and “Primrose Lane”?

    thank you,
