Say Farewell to "The Professah" at Blues & Brews 2016

Jun 15, 2016

WMRA is sponsoring the 8th Annual Shenandoah Valley Blues & Brews Festival, and the day's festivities will have a very special emcee, our own Greg Versen a.k.a "The Professah", host of Blues Valley.

This is Greg's final year as the host of Blues Valley on WMRA and his final broadcast will be Saturday, December 31st. As part of our farewell festivities, we are partnering with the 2016 Blues & Brews festival, this Saturday, August 6th, in downtown Staunton, to give him a proper send off.

WMRA will have a tent at the festival and you are welcome to stop by, sit down for a minute, and record a farewell comment for The Professah and Blues Valley. We hope to use those comments in future broadcasts of Blues Valley as we approach Greg's final show. We'll also have a guest book for fans to write a farewell message to Greg.

The Blues & Brews Festival takes place August 6th in Historic Downtown Staunton at the Wharf Parking Lot from 2pm to 9pm.

This year's lineup includes:
Mud Morganfield (Muddy Waters' first born son)
Kate Moss
Brian Mesko
Kevin Chisnell
The Nighthawks
Moonshine Society
Parker & Gray
Little Lester
