The show began 12 years ago with Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle (Anna & Elizabeth) as the original show hosts. Anna & Elizabeth built the profile of the Floyd Radio Show and introduced its unique old timey format to the world. Anna & Elizabeth moved on to focus on their careers in 2015 and The Floyd Country Store continued to produce the Floyd Radio Show with guest hosts and in-house actors. For the 11th season, The Floyd Radio Show is excited to welcome our good friend Kelley Breiding to host the show and reach far back into the rich traditions of old time radio programs while moving the show into the future all while featuring the best musicians as special guests all season long.
