Bobbi Bell

Bio: 

No stranger to co-hosting on radio, Bobbi Bell, was part of the “Around The Barn” Saturday morning team on Santa Clarita’s KHTS Hometown radio for several years. Currently, you can catch her on “Campfire Café” every Thursday at 12:00pm (CST) with host Gary Holt. They cover the equestrian lifestyle as well as western and country music on www.equestrianlegacy.net. Bobbi joins host Jim Christina as his side kick on “The Writer’s Block,” a longtime dream of Jim’s. Bobbi is passionate about the written word and how it is interpreted in prose, poetry, on screen, and in song. She is passionate about the American West and how its story has been told- the truth and the myth, the landscape, the people and their stories, the cultural arts and the West as portrayed by musicians, writers, authors, artists, designers, craftspeople, weavers, potters, jewelers, and filmmakers. Bobbi and her husband, Jim Bell, are so committed to presenting the West to a worldwide audience that they developed the OutWest Creed for their "brick and click" OutWest Boutique and Cultural Center: 1. To Bring the Mystique of the "West" (fact, fiction & legend) to a the marketplace 2. To Introduce artisans, musicians, and makers of specialty products to a worldwide audience 3. To nurture a dream of all those who see an inspiration for today from traditions of the past. Presenting the power of the written word, each year, OutWest organizes The Buckaroo Book Shop, a Community Partner to the annual Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival. Over 20 authors are available to chat with readers, sign books, and be part of panel discussions and interviews. They continue to present new authors’ works through their ongoing “Rendezvous With A Writer” events. Vice President of the Western Music Association California Chapter, Bobbi enjoys meeting songwriters and musicians who have a love for the music of the West - including Western, Folk, Roots, Americana, Bluegrass, Swing, and Rockabilly and she actively seeks venues and ways to promote their music. Since 2009, with her husband Jim, they have hosted evenings of live music captured on film by their community's local media center, SCVTV. Known as SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series, these intimate live acoustic music concerts have been enjoyed by audiences throughout the world through SCVTV's website. Bobbi is excited about joining Jim Christina to give listeners the opportunity to hear from talented, engaging, and thought provoking authors, poets, and songwriters of all genres. Tune in every Thursday at 8:00 p.m. (PST) to Writer’s Block with Jim and Bobbi! Have a question for Bobbi? Contact her at bobbijeanbell@gmail.com
