“The Tour Bus" is one of the very few long-playing nationally syndicated rock radio shows in the US. TTB has been cranking across the globe both on terrestrial radio stations and online for over 10 years, and with our new co-host, is bigger and better than ever! The Bus mixes the best party rock bands from the 80’s, 90’s and today including such classic bands as Van Halen, Motley Crue, Scorpions and Judas Priest all the way to today’s top rockers including Buckcherry, Five Finger Death Punch, and Avenged Sevenfold. For three hours every weekend, TTB takes over the road.
Hosted by Ralph Sutton and new co-host Melissa Krahnke, The Tour Bus features music news, tour updates, and weekly interviews while playing at least 10 songs per hour. PPM friendly? Oh yeah… TTB captures the energy of a morning show with a music intensive program; the enigmatic and energetic hosts keep the pace at speeds illegal on any highway! With markets from Greenville to Paducah to Shreveport, this program deserves an even larger base than the dozens of stations already digging the Bus.
Ralph Sutton has been at the epicenter of rock for most of his life. Starting as a promoter and DJ at some of the most famous rock clubs ever (Lamour, Limelight, etc) – and after brief stints as a strip club DJ, and running a top French restaurant in NYC – Ralph created The Tour Bus Radio show. He’s been as a VJ on VH1-Classic, the host of various TV pilots, the straight guy on the most watched episode ever of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, written monthly articles for rock magazines like Metal Edge, Ralph has created strong relationships with rockstars, promoters, labels, and more.
Melissa Krahnke has been a touring musician since she graduated from high school. As a singer/songwriter she's opened for Staind, Blue Oyster Cult, Seven Mary Three, Sully from Godsmack and many more. She was recruited off the stage to be in radio - her passion is obvious when she interviews other musicians. With her contagious upbeat attitude and rock credibility, she's become a popular host/emcee all over the east coast. Melissa brings party wherever she goes!
