“Mr. Rogers meets the Grand Ole Opry”

LEXINGTON, Ky. (September 20, 2022) – Folksinger Michael Johnathon’s nationally syndicated radio and TV broadcast, WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, is set to begin initial pilot production for a new spin-off series called WoodSongs Kids. The upcoming October 10 taping at the Lyric Theater in Lexington, Kentucky will feature numerous kid musicians (ages 6-16). School teachers, and home school parents may bring their students for FREE to the Oct. 10 taping. WoodSongs Kids is being produced initially as a TV series for public television TV affiliates across the nation.

“We have featured young kids on every WoodSongs broadcast for years, making it a highlight of the show every week,” Johnathon said. “WoodSongs Kids will be devoted exclusively to the kids of America’s front porch. Think “Mr. Rogers meets the Grand Ole Opry” and you will have a good idea of what’s coming.” 

With a global partnership with the Department of Kentucky Tourism and VisitLEX, an extended residency for the next five years at the historic Lyric Theatre and a recently installed exhibit at the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, WoodSongs continues to grow its radio affiliate base, enhance its online presence, and expand its large TV audience.  WoodSongs invites people from around the world to visit and experience the welcoming “front porch” of Kentucky, which is at the crossroads of America’s folk, country and bluegrass music communities.
