Larry Groce (born April 22, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter and radio host. Since 1983, Groce has served as the host and artistic director of Mountain Stage, a two-hour live music program produced by West Virginia Public Radio and distributed by NPR. He first entered the national spotlight in 1976 when his novelty song "Junk Food Junkie" became a Top Ten hit. After that, Groce's voice became well known by children and parents alike as a result of his Platinum recordings of classic children's songs for Walt Disney Records Children's Favorites 4-volume series: Volume 1 (1979), Volume 2 (1979), Volume 3 (1986), and Volume 4 (1990).

In 1976, his satiric novelty song "Junk Food Junkie" became a top-ten hit and led to appearances on The Disney Channel.

Between 1979 and 1990, Groce appeared on nine Disney albums, six of which were certified Gold and two Platinum. His first Disney recording, "Winnie the Pooh for President," was nominated for a Grammy in the category of "Best Recording for Children" in 1976, and Disney's Children's Favorites Volumes I-IV remain in print and continue to sell.
