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.
The community is invited to attend the taping of the premiere performance, which will feature:
local historian John Shubert
disco hit makers of the 80’s
stories about the establishment of the only parks west of the Rockies privately owned and operated by a non-profit organization
a popular library program called “Read to a Dog” and
the struggle faced by old-timers to attract volunteers to keep their historic institutions alive.
Free and open to the public, parking available across the street from the theater
