Over the next 16 years, Bert had tours of duty at numerous local radio stations in the Catawba Valley region of western North Carolina. While Bert spent days radio broadcasting at various area stations, evenings were spent playing music at skating rinks and weekends providing his services for class reunions, school dances, corporate parties and weddings among other events. The combination of radio and mobile entertaining quickly honed Bert’s communication skills. In November of 2000, Bert made the decision to abandon radio and concentrate on building his company Magical Music.
Since that fateful day, Bert has committed himself to providing quality entertainment for a variety of clients and events. Bert’s travels have seen him in area nightspots and restaurants across the foothills and beyond. Bert has used his experiences at these venues to transform himself into a more versatile entertainer and showman. It’s not uncommon for clients to comment on Bert’s ability to know what song to play or what activity to conduct at just the right time. It’s only natural then that Magical Music is the preferred choice of those fortunate enough to learn of Bert and his talents.
Early in 2012, Bert was presented with the opportunity to purchase the broadcast license for WSVM in Valdese. By the end of September of that year, Bert had reentered the broadcast realm in ownership. In addition, Bert provides news on the small, community-based radio station. If you’re in Burke county or the surrounding area in NC, tune in at 1490 on the AM dial. If you reside elsewhere, use the TuneIn app for computer, smartphone or personal listening device and search for WSVM. With streaming technology, you can listen anywhere in the world! Even with his return to broadcasting, Bert continues to entertain for events of all sizes, public and private.
On a personal note, Bert is married to Cyndi Clark. They have two children: Alex and Emily. The family resides at the home where Bert first put needle to vinyl on his dad’s portable phonograph.
