Bruce Caplan is a Seattle native with very eclectic interests. Back in the 70’s he was the sponsor of a 40’s music radio show on KXA in Seattle. When he watched the movie Titanic staring Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck in 1953 Caplan became fascinated with the horrible tragedy. In 1996 his book on the subject was released. It’s now in the 20th printing. A decade ago Caplan began to do a weekly radio show on KIXI. The program is called Radio Trivia and he weekly brings to his audience the best of the best of the comedies from the golden age of radio. Because of Caplan’s interest in true crime, he began a second program on KIXI called Crime Club. On this show he often discuses events with authors of books on criminal subjects and weekly plays the great radio mysteries from long ago. Bruce has lectured throughout our nation and on scores of cruises. His greatest thrill is searching through the goldmine of radio gems of mysteries and comedies from yesteryear and bringing them back to an eager audience of young and old. --- View other articles by Bruce Caplan

  1. Hi Bruce.
    We have met before! Once when I was trying to wish Wayne’s brother a happy birthday I ended up sending that birthday wish to you instead.
    Small world huh. I used to be Wayne’s next door neighbor and I consider Wayne Eberhart my long time best friend. I am 87 years old. I have now
    moved in with my son and daughter-in-law and have been here for almost six years. How neat that that Bruce “mistake” turned out to be okne of Wayne’s good friends.
