About this Host


Ben, affectionately known as Monniben, is a celebrated radio host whose vibrant presence and engaging storytelling resonate across four distinct radio shows, each showcasing his deep passion for different musical genres. With a warm and authentic voice, Ben creates a welcoming atmosphere that makes listeners feel like part of a musical family.

As the host of “Visions of the Past”, Ben’s infectious enthusiasm for music history is palpable. Each episode is a journey through the untold stories and pivotal moments that have shaped our musical landscape, making history accessible and fascinating. He pairs this with co-host Claude on “Juke Joint”, where they dive into the rich worlds of blues and rock. Here, Ben’s knowledge of musical legends and his impeccable taste bring to life the soulful melodies and rhythms that define these genres.

On his own, Ben leads “Prog Rock”, a show dedicated to the intricate and often philosophical world of progressive rock. Starting from its psychedelic roots in the 1960s to its resurgence in the 1990s, Ben explores the genre’s complex arrangements and its evolution, engaging listeners with both classic and modern interpretations by bands like Pink Floyd and Dream Theater. His detailed narratives not only highlight the music’s depth but also its cultural impact, making “Prog Rock” a treasure trove for aficionados and new listeners alike.

“Bordertown”, another solo venture, offers a deep dive into Americana, alternative Roots- and Country-Rock, with spiritual nods to artists like Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, whose work always opens the show. Ben’s storytelling captures the soul of Americana, weaving the poignant tales and rustic vibes of its music into a tapestry of emotional landscapes that echo the spirit of its legends.

In all these roles, Ben exemplifies a broadcaster of exceptional range and depth. Whether exploring the complex layers of prog rock, celebrating the historical narratives of blues and rock, or narrating the soul-stirring tales of Americana, Ben’s shows are a testament to his mastery of the medium and his ability to create an immersive listening experience. Through “Visions of the Past”, “Juke Joint”, “Prog Rock” and “Bordertown”, Ben transforms each broadcast into a celebration of music’s enduring power to tell stories, evoke emotions, and connect us across time and space.
