Featuring traditional country music from the 1960s and 1970s, Legend Radio offers some of the greatest fiddle and steel sounds that warm the heart and bring back great memories.

Legend Radio is hosted by Jim Loessberg, who has played with many of the greats throughout the years.

His musical career began at about age 10 with an interest in playing the drums. His dad, Les Loessberg, was a steel player, and Jim would go with him to his jobs and sit in with the band. Jim played professionally for the first time when I was 14 years of age and continued to play drums until he was 17.

It was then that he first became interested in playing the steel guitar. He had the good fortune of having been exposed to the best steel players in the world as a teenager. He remembers his mom and dad taking his brother, who is a terrific bass player, and him to see Buddy Emmons, Jimmy Day and Rick Price, who was then playing for Johnny Bush. The more he heard my dad and those other great players play, the more he wanted to try to make those beautiful sounds myself.
