Details Of The Dulcimer

Proponents and players of the Appalachian Dulcimer stop by the studios to spread the word about their favorite instrument.

Carrie Barnes, John Keane and Karen Keane met via the interest group Friends Of The Mountain Dulcimer, thanks to their common love of this uncommon instrument. The three self confessed "Dulcimer Fanatics" dropped by the KETR studios to talk with Matt Meinke about this lesser known stringed contraption.

Originally aired December 13, 2012 on Notably Texan.

Born in Dallas, Texas, Matt moved to the Sulphur Springs area in 1990 and settled in Commerce shortly thereafter. Having dreamed of working in radio since childhood, he began working at KETR while taking Radio-Television courses at Texas A&M University-Commerce in 1993. Matt has transitioned from a part-time worker and pupil of KETR, to the station’s Chief Announcer/Producer and supervisor of student broadcasters. A familiar voice of 88-9 KETR, Matt has hosted such shows as The Late Nite Lion, and can currently be heard as host of Notably Texan.
