Kevin Pytcher comes to 101.1 WRR from El Paso with an extensive radio and television background. He spent the past several years working in television, as promotions manager for the PBS affiliate and a broadcast and internet producer/writer for the leading news station. But his first love is radio, where he got his start after high school as an announcer and classical music director of KTEP-FM. Born in Lubbock and raised in El Paso, he earned a degree in communication from the University of Texas at El Paso.
Pytcher has an extensive background in community theater including the roles of Boolie in "Driving Miss Daisy" and Tevye in "Fiddler on the Roof."
Pytcher is your co-pilot for the afternoon.
Favorite City Other than Dallas: Santa Fe, NM, for its similar emphasis on the performing and graphic arts
First concert was the El Paso Symphony Orchestra, part of a school field trip. I remember there was Berlioz overture played. I didn't fully appreciate classical music back then, but I remember being impressed with the sound of the orchestra. About five years later, as a teenager, I began collecting classical records. First acquisitions were Wendy Carlos's first Switched on Bach and Isao Tomita's Pictures at an Exhibition, both electronic music discs. In fact, it was my listening to electronic music that introduced me to the classical repertory, and it wasn't long before I found the original symphonic versions to be immensely satisfying.
