Host, Rob Reinhart's Essential Music & Acoustic Cafe

Rob started his professional broadcasting career while still in college, pursuing his degree in Psychology. After college, he chose radio over the human psyche. He currently hosts “Essential Music” on WDET, and “Acoustic Cafe,” syndicated around the country and worldwide on Voice Of America.

Over the last 20 years, Reinhart has also owned a small ad agency, written and produced syndicated comedy for radio, voiced thousands of radio and TV commercials, consulted movie, television and internet media projects, and even been the voice of Radio Bonnaroo!
