Bob Dorr

Studio One host

Bob started his 40+ year career in Iowa Public Broadcasting (radio and TV) when he did the first rock 'n' roll show EVAH on an Iowa Public Radio station Oct. 2, 1972. He was honored/recognized for those years by being inducted into the Iowa Rock'n'Roll Music Association's Hall of Fame in Sept. of 2000.

Simultaneously, Bob has been the leader, singer, and harmonica player of The Blue Band for 30+ years for which he was inducted into the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame in 2005 and reinducted into the Iowa Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
