Where Ya Been? The Odyssey and Elegy of Luke Bell-Trailer

Luke Bell

Luke Bell

Kevin Romeo of Rhino Media is producing a documentary film on the late Luke Bell from Cody, Wyoming.

Luke was an incredibly talented singer, songwriter, and performer that we lost too soon. We were fortunate to have Luke Bell perform in the Wyoming Public Media studios and during a live broadcast at Cheyenne Frontier Days. We also enjoyed sharing his music with our audience from his self-titled album. I could segue a Luke Bell song next to any of the country greats from Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams to Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. Luke Bell was authentic, and genuine and he could yodel.

We look forward to the documentary film Where Ya Been? The Odyssey and Elegy of Luke Bell coming later this year. Enjoy the trailer in the meantime.

Grady has taken a circuitous route from his hometown of Kansas City to Wyoming. Sometime after the London Bridge had fallen down, he moved to Arizona and attended Arizona State University and actually graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. ("He's a Lumberjack and he's OK……..!") He began his radio career in Prescott in 1982 and eventually returned to Kansas City where he continued in radio through the summer of 1991. Public Radio and the Commonwealth of Kentucky beckoned him to the bluegrass state where he worked as Operations/Program Manager at WKMS in Murray and WNKU in Highland Heights just across the Ohio from Cincinnati.
