Last Radio Show of the Season to Host – Floyd Country Store
By Luis A. Garcia on May 9, 2013
The Floyd Radio Show: live from the heart of downtown Floyd Virginia! The next show up is Saturday, May 11, 2013, 7:30 PM. Hosts Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle bring together a new variety show every month. They write and perform original radio plays, comedy bits, ads, jingles, music and more. Each show features three of the area’s finest old-timey musical acts, from storytelling banjo players to flatpicking guitarists to hard-driving stringbands.
Guests for May’s show include Wayne Henderson, Dean Reed and Nii Anang. Wayne Henderson’s top-notch finger-picking is a source of great pleasure and pride to his friends, family, and neighbors in Grayson County, Virginia; his guitar playing has also been enjoyed at Carnegie Hall, in three national tours of “Masters of the Steel-String Guitar”, and in seven nations in Asia. In addition to his reputation as a guitarist, Henderson is a luthier of great renown. He is a recipient of a 1995 National Heritage Award presented by the National Endowment for the Arts.
