Clarissa Lynn has strong roots in North Dakota coming from a small, family farm operation north of Stanton or just a little south of Pick City by the Lake Sakakawea area where she did more bale haulin' and cow milkin' than fishin'; however, Clarissa grew up in a musical family loving and learning to dance to old time and country music.
Clarissa graduated from Dickinson State with a two-year broadcasting degree and a major in Elementary Education, later completing an Elementary Master's Degree from Northern State University, Aberdeen, SD and the University of Mary in Bismarck.
Clarissa has always made radio a part of her weekends and summers while teaching during the school year. Clarissa and her husband, Tom, who is an Ag salesman for Butler Machinery Company, enjoy family, friends, Clarissa's old '67 Chevy, Tom's Harley, German cooking, and lots of dancing and music, music, music....!
"The BEST part of radio is the people I've met through the years," she says, "What a blessing!"
Listen to Clarissa Lynn on KBMR weekends, the Gospel Program at 10:00am and Happy Hour from noon to 2:00pm on Sundays.
That JOLLY accordion man, Victor Wald, from Napoleon, North Dakota continues to delight people across North Dakota with his talented style of accordion music. A giant of a man with hands and fingers that make you think how can he get those little accordion keys so perfectly struck? A giant teddy bear with a soft heart who loves to entertain people with his God-given gift of playing "by ear" those favorite old time tunes.
Victor Wald has two CD's that are played on the KBMR Happy Hour. The music features the late Butch Berreth on drums, and you can hear Victor's wife, Barbara, do vocals on a couple of the selections. Today, Victor is a one-man band with his wife Barbara by his side. Victor Wald recently played at the 44th annual Mercer County Winter Party at the Bismarck Eagles Club to a group of about 100 in attendance. You can always hear VICTOR WALD music on the 11:30 KBMR Happy Hour on Sundays from noon till 2:00.
