On this week's Best of Pickin, tune in for music from John Jorgenson. This west Coast based artist will be in town for a concert on July 21st. Also, cover tunes from Del McCoury, Town Mountain, and the Osborne Brothers. And, music from the Chicago based Special Consensus Band and their Great Blue North album, where they took Canadian singer-songwriter's work and performed them in the bluegrass genre. It's a great release! Tune in for the Best of Pickin. Friday night at 11 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.
