ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WICKLINE Biography

Kentucky-born Bob Wickline has written and produced most of the songs on his first six albums, which included several singles that made it on local and national charts. His latest Christmas CD album, "What Christmas Really Means," is a collection of thirteen traditional holiday songs and covers, along with four original tracks for the holiday season. The recording/performing group, WICKLINE, includes Bob's wife, Lynda, their two daughters, Mandi and Marcee, and talented friends Dave Thomas, Sherman Hayes (formerly with Waylon Jennings and Mac Davis), Karla Jo Tupper, and Dave Michalski.

In the early 1950s, six-year-old "Bobby" Wickline launched his singing career as a regular on WLEX and WKYT-TV in Lexington, Kentucky, strumming his three-quarter Gibson guitar and singing country and early rock & roll tunes.

After moving to Hawthorne, California at age twelve, Bob's love for music was rekindled by neighbor and friend, Carl Wilson (future Beach Boy), who urged him to take out his guitar from under the bed, dust it off, and start playing again. During his freshman year at Hawthorne High, he began writing his own songs and started recording in Hollywood.

After he moved his family to Washington State in 1975, Bob started his own group, and soon his own interest in "snow skiing" led him to compose songs and generate "World of White - THE Ski Music Video Album." This album led to sponsorships for ski industry promotions and exposure of his music on The Today Show and ET, as well as frequent appearances during the golden years of the Nashville Network.

As a career elementary school teacher, Bob also found time to form the touring group, WICKLINE, which made the rounds of the local, county, and state fair circuits for several years. During these same years, WICKLINE toured over 2,000 elementary schools for the Washington State Arts Commission with "WICKLINE'S Bluegrass Assembly." The five piece, professional bluegrass band shared the history of bluegrass with elementary students. The show was augmented with humorous skits and anecdotes. These were truly magical, musical history tours.

His passion for a brighter future for the children of the world brought him, along with his singing family, a cross-country tour of radio and television interviews highlighting his song, "Now's the Time to Put Children First." The tour was initiated and supported by UNICEF International. The family finished their national tour with the presentation of their song during the "Olympic Mayor's Breakfast," which was an opening event for the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, GA. Other original, inspirational, ski, and love songs by WICKLINE have elicited invitations to perform at local and national events, fairs, schools, educational conferences, conventions, political rallies and been seen and heard on radio and television shows throughout the country.
