Special Musical Guest July 2010: Matt Watroba
The July 17th show features Matt Watroba. His love of folk music has led him to his position of “Folks Like Us” radio host, a position he held for over 20 years on WDET-FM. He was awarded “Best Overall Folk Performer” by the Detroit Music Awards in the year 2000. He has shared the stage with some of our greatest performers, including Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Arlo Guthrie, Shawn Colvin, Christine Lavin, Peter Yarrow, and Richard Thompson.
He will join Huckleberry Radio Hour regulars; Neil Woodward-Michigan’s Troubadour, Gary Weisenberg, the Flint Jubilee Chorale, the Huckleberry Players, sound effects artist Jon Coggins, and writer/host well known, local broadcaster Michael J. Thorp.
The “Huckleberry Radio Hour features its own soap opera, “As the Village Turns.,” a humorous look at the trials and tribulations of the residents of historic Crossroads Village. The village history lesson by our village School Marm, Miss Neva Rochester, our weather Rock forecast with village weather guesser Mike Jobin, story telling and lots of music and fun in a jam packed hour of live entertainment all live start to finish.
The music, the commercials, even the sound effects are all performed live, no tape or Computers in this show. Since the “Huckleberry Radio Hour is a “Live” radio show, the studio audience is an essential part of the cast.” “Without them, it’s not “Live” radio.”
Thorp says, “When you think of the “Huckleberry Radio Hour,” think of a combination of those classic radio variety shows, “The Grand Ole Opry” and “A Prairie Home Companion”, with a touch of the “Jack Benny Program”, and “Fibber McGee and Molly.”
The next show is Saturday July 17th at 7PM For tickets to the “Huckleberry Radio Hour” or to order log on to www.geneseecountyparks.org .
