On this week’s Acoustic Highway, we’ll celebrate all things dad with music for Father’s day. We’ll hear from the legendary Dave Mallet, captured live in concert with the tunes “Daddy’s Oldsmobile” and “My Old Man.” Also, music from regional artists The Gurleys, as well as long-time Acoustic Highway favorite Greg Winkler, plus plenty of others. Call dad, tell him how much you appreciate him, and tune in for our annual tribute. Sunday night at 9 on WHRV.

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.
