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.

Roger Emter has been known to say, "If I can learn just one song, I'll be happy." This was the dream of Roger Emter back in 1990 when he purchased his first button accordion. Roger's enthusiastic attitude toward old-time accordion music inspired his son, Adam to begin lessons also. After six months of practice sessions, Roger and Adam performed three songs on their button accordions in front of a live audience of 200 people, and the rest is history - so they say.
I met the Emters in Glen Ullin some years ago and cemented a life-long friendship with this Christian family! Once you attend their Christmas concert programs or any Emter show at their theater west of Mandan, you will also be inspired. They are now a THREE GENERATION performing family.Today,I'm sure it's an unbelievable dream come true for Roger Emter. The Emters have performed over 750 stage shows throughout 30 states, Canada, and Mexico. The Happy Hour plays their birthday song weekly and you can bet your button accordion, you'll always hear an Emter song on the Happy Hour! Be sure to listen to KBMR for their 2011 concert information.
