Roanoke and Surrounds Featured on NPR

The Roanoke Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau shared this NPR audio file with us
Virginia Wineries and Vineyards make a great destination
Last month, Tom Wilmer, a journalist from the most recent media tour finished producing a radio segment for his travel series. Wilmer is the producer and host of Audiolog the Travel Show which serves southern Monterey County in California, including Santa Barbara and several affiliates of NPR.  Tom commented, “There was so much cool material that we decided to do a half-hour special.  We will also produce a second segment in the series that will showcase Booker T. Washington National Monument and the Blue Ridge Institute and Farm Museum.  Personally I think your show is the best we have produced in a very long time....I think it was a combination of outstanding commentary combined with exceptionally captivating personalities interviewed throughout the show.” (Note from your innkeeper at The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast - "I will be sure to share the second half which is Franklin County as soon as it airs! ")
