RFD Planning New Show "Larry's Country Diner"

Whisperin' Bill Anderson will be the first musical guest on a new show being created in Nashville at RFD-TV called Larry's Country Diner, scheduled to debut on Sept. 3.

Taped in a typical diner setting, the show is hosted by broadcast personality/producer Larry Black, who is joined by regular cast members, along with announcer Keith Bilbrey.

Anderson will perform on the first show and artists already booked for future shows include 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 6:0pm/Eastern and will re-broadcast every Saturday night at 11:00pm/Eastern.

Now, if they can only add the Grand Ole Opry this would be a great network. They already have The Marty Stuart Show, Opry Family Reunion and the reruns of The Porter Wagoner Show, The Wilburn Brothers Show and Pop Goes The Country. They have dropped Imus in the morning.

  1. They haven't dropped Imus yet. He is still on. However, it is being reported that he is going to move his show to Fox Business Channel as early as September. The report I saw said that RFD is experiencing some financial problems and is behind in payments to Imus. You wonder if they would even have the money to get Opry Live.
