The Mop Tops & The King

THE MOP TOPS AND THE KING  AIRS:  3:00PM FRIDAY on KMRE-LP 102.3 FM or on kmre.org

We are a weekly, one hour radio show featuring the music of The Beatles and Elvis Presley with some fun surprises in between.  Our goal is to bring joy and happiness to the world through the music of The Beatles and Elvis one listener at a time!  

We strive to keep the show entertaining and fun. We are very excited to be a part of KMRE-LP 102.3FM! Steve Chelmsford is the host of “The Mop Tops & The King” and has been a fan of The Beatles and Elvis Presley since he was two years old. Steve got his start in radio when he met Dusty Fenders and Carl Brownfield, two local radio personalities on “Radio Goldfield”, a small community radio station in the middle of the Nevada desert.  Steve developed a friendship with Carl & Dusty and soon became a member of “The Carl and Dusty Radio Boogie” writing jingles and other musical pieces. About a year later, Radio Goldfield asked Steve if he would be interested in having his own show.

The Mop Tops & The King Radio Show, which made its debut on December 4, 2011, is currently carried on 16 community radio stations from Bellingham, WA to Chelmsford, England. In a previous life, Steve was a research engineer with the Air Force Research Laboratory for nearly 30 years. He is a life-long resident of Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
