Late last year, Santa Rosa’s KRSH, Radio 95.9 FM, long a bastion of alternative music, took a turn toward the middle of the road.

The changes prompted KRSH morning host Brian Griffith to move to KRCB, and Bill Bowker, longtime afternoon host at KRSH, took its morning shift.

But starting Monday, Jan. 27, Bowker moves back to afternoons.

“The format of KRSH will be Americana, roots, blues and singer-songwriters,” Bowker said. “Listeners didn’t like the younger-tiered music, so we’re going kinda back to where we were some years ago.”

The DJ lineup will be: Bob Sala, 6-10 a.m.; Andre, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; Bowker, 3-7 p.m.; Amber, 7-10 p.m.

“We’re regrouping,” Bowker said. “We’re ready to get back to the roots of things. Management had wanted to add some younger music into it, but there’s enough of that around. The demo that supports us is age 35-plus.”

    Too bad it took them that long to figure it ou. KRCB should be thanking them for the new listeners.

    Hi Bill, Great news!, and congratulations.

    We know each other originally from The Goodman Brothers in Marin/Sonoma in the 70′s, and ran across each other in Nashville in the 90′s somewhere..

    Always writing, but after a long performing hiatus, I’m back to it, and doing my best work. Can I send you a copy of Buzz Holland: The First 21? Blues, Country, Jazz, more. It’s brand new. We recorded 50 songs, and these are the first 21 we mixed.

    Don’t bother replying-I’ll get that info from the FAQ or somewhere-consider my note a re-introduction, and congratulations! And if you get to Portland, feel free to give Duck (she plays the bass) and I a call, we’lll buy dinner..xx
