On this week’s Acoustic Highway, we celebrate Mother’s Day with songs all about Mom. We’ll hear from the Austin Lounge Lizards, Lucy Kaplansky, Tommy Malone and plenty of others including several selections from the CD  simply entitled Mother: Songs Celebrating Mothers and Motherhood. Artists  Cathie Ryan, Robin Spielberg, and Susan McKeown all join forces  for this wonderful release full of ballads all about being a mom. Call mom, tell her how much you appreciate her, and tune in for this annual salute to those special ladies in our lives.

Join us on Sunday night at 9 on WHRV FM. Or stream the program live online.

Barry Graham used to arrive at WHRO with a briefcase full of papers and lesson plans. For 32 years he taught US and Virginia Government in the Virginia Beach Public Schools. While teaching was always his first love, radio was a close second. While attending Old Dominion, Barry was program director at WODU, the college radio station. After graduating, he came to WHRO as an overnight announcer. Originally intending to stay on only while completing graduate school, he was soon hooked on Public Radio and today is the senior announcer on WHRV. In 2001, Barry earned his Ph.D in Urban Studies by writing a history of WHRO and analyzing its impact upon local education, policy and cultural arts organizations.
