RFD-TV Premieres New Show, "Larry's Country Diner"
Whisperin' Bill Anderson will be the first musical guest on a brand-new show being created in Nashville at RFD-TV called Larry's Country Diner, which is scheduled to debut on Sept. 3.
Taped in a typical diner setting, the show could be described as a country version of "Cheers" and is hosted by broadcast personality/producer Larry Black, who is joined by regular cast members known as "Nadine, The Church Lady" (Mona Brown) and "The Sheriff" (Opry musician Jimmy Capps), along with announcer Keith Bilbrey.
The Diner's menu offers such "fixin's" as Whisperin' Bill's Nanner Pudding and Little Jimmy Dickens' Tater Salad with a slogan that boasts of being "WHERE PEOPLE MEET, AND THE HUNGRY EAT".
Among artists already booked for future shows are such stars as Larry Gatlin, The Whites, Jim Ed Brown, Gene Watson, Jeannie Seely, T. Graham Brown and Bobby Bare.
Larry's Country Diner is a 60-minute show, which is scheduled to air on RFD-TV every Thursday night at 6 p.m. EST and will re-broadcast every Saturday night at 11 p.m. EST.
