Terri Allard on
The Eclectic Woman Show
Thursday, November 29, 2007 at 7pm
Tune in on Thursday, November 29 at 7 p.m. to listen to an interview with Sandy Snyder, Joyce Dudek and Terri Allard.
Terri is a popular performing artist and a native daughter of the Charlottesville region. She has been performing since childhood and has taken her her rootsy blend of folk, country, and acoustic pop to countless clubs, coffeehouses and festivals throughout the U.S.
Terri's latest venture is as the host of a new local show produced by WHTJ-PBS called "Charlottesville Inside-Out." She'll be discussing the new show during her interview on The Eclectic Woman Show.
"Charlottesville Inside-Out" is a fun and unique series that explores the people and places that define Charlottesville. The half-hour show debuts on Thursday, November 8 at 8:30 p.m. on WHTJ-PBS (channel 41, cable 7). Subsequent shows air on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.
The title for "Charlottesville Inside-Out" comes directly from the concept underlying each episode - Terri Allard introduces the guest from inside WHTJ's studio on the Downtown Mall, and then she heads out to interview the guest on location.
"Interviews are conducted anywhere the subject take us." said WHTJ station manager D.J. Crotteau. "It's great fun for our whole production team to be out in the woods one minute, then in a classroom, then in the kitchen of a gourmet restaurant. There's just no end to the list of cool people doing cool things in this area."
WHTJ's new studio is located on the east end of the Downtown Mall, near the Free Speech monument and City Hall. The studio is equipped with brand new, digital HD cameras and a suite of wireless, mobile production equipment that allows the production crew to work in a controlled studio setting, and then pick up and go just about anywhere.
Interviews have been conducted at the Charlottesville Pavilion, Innisfree Village, the Free Clinic, along the 250 bypass for Art in Place, Walker Elementary School, Zocalo restaurant, SOCA's South Fork soccer fields and in the Dome Room of the Rotunda.
Guests include African drummer Darrell Rose; Monticello's executive director Dan Jordan; world-champion juggler Mark Nizer; City Schools Superintendent Rosa Atkins and Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Wagner. Each thirty-minute show features two interview segments.
The first season of "Charlottesville Inside-Out" kicks off with an interview of Mark Thompson, brewmaster at Starr Hill Brewery in Crozet, and Susanne Kogut, executive director of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. The interviews were taped on location at the brewery in Crozet and at the new SPCA facility on Berkmar Drive.
