Note: Frank hosted his last show on March 28, 2015. The Cafe is now officially closed!! Here are some photos from the last show. Thanks for listening, everyone!
Frank Gosar grew up in a house without a radio in rural Wisconsin. He made up for lost time in college, discovering "Simply Folk" on Wisconsin Public Radio and "A Prairie Home Companion" on MPR. Eventually he joined the ranks of public radio volunteers, writing and telling children's stories (and eventually writing and recording songs) for WLSU/La Crosse's "Earticklers."
When he came to Eugene for graduate school in 1985, he became a fan of KLCC's folk music programs, especially The Saturday Cafe. Since 1990, he's hosted the show.
Frank is a full-time potter, selling his work at the Eugene Saturday Market and other art and craft fairs, and previewing folk music for KLCC in his clay studio. He lives on River Road with his wife Denise, two cats, and a great number of teddy bears.
