MONTE RIO– WONDERLAND RADIO HOUR
Prairie Home Companion meets Amateur Radio Hour in a series of live radio shows to be recorded at the historic Rio Theater in beautiful downtown Monte Rio. This series of community-produced, community-inspired recorded programs will then be broadcast on KRCB Radio. Each hour will showcase local musicians, artists, writers and characters from various areas of the Lower Russian River Area, from Forestville to Jenner-by-the-Sea. This episode will feature Rio Nido.
The community is invited to attend the taping of this second in our series with a focus on the hamlet of Rio Nido, CA, including an oral history of 98-year old lifetime resident, Clare Harris, an overview of Russian immigration along the River by local historian and newspaper columnist Gaye LeBaron, performance of traditional folk songs by the Slavyanka Russian Chorus, the mystery behind the origins of the Rio Nido winking moon and stories of the early days of the Big Band and Rock and Roll scene that brought to the bandstand the likes of Buddy Rich, Frank Sinatra, and the Grateful Dead.
Free and open to the public, parking available across the street from the theater
