John Ryster
Bluegrass Diversion
Saturdays, 10am-1pm

“Bluegrass Diversion” on Morehead State Public Radio is WMKY’s weekly showcase of bluegrass music, with a spotlight on music news, concerts and festivals, interviews, in-studio guests, and listener requests.

First launched in 1984, Lisa Lally was the creator and host of the original “Bluegrass Diversion” program, followed by John Skaggs, and the late Sandy Knipp, who hosted the program for 20 years.

The new host of “Bluegrass Diversion” is John Ryster, a multi-instrumentalist, luthier, teacher, and music historian. Ryster came to Morehead State University in 2008 for the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music program and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management.
