Perry Woodfin’s DEBUT on Whidbey AIR

Hello Listeners,

Local Whidbey artist, and writer, Perry Woodfin, has been working on production of his new Whidbey AIR show Adult Content.  It’s been exciting and fun to have Perry contributing to our community generated content on Whidbey AIR. As per the title of his show, the best we can say is – don’t judge a show by its title.  During Adult Content Perry reads his original writings, accompanied by his choice of music, and not a vulgarity in sight.

This first edition includes a short story, When the Dust Settles, and two poems, Master Mind and Tracking Me.  Below is a note from Perry concerning this piece.

LISTEN Adult Content with Perry Woodfin – When the Dust Settles and 2 Poems

“My father, Don Woodfin, was a very resourceful man. He would use every opportunity to invent tools and was a real master of all trades. While living on Vashon Island he met and became friends with Betty McDonald and her husband. Betty MacDonald was the author of “The Egg and I”, among many other creations. Betty and her husband hired my dad to build a barn for them on their property. That barn is now on the National Historic Register as being considered historically relevant. Betty and her husband and my father and mother had many good times together until she died of cancer. “When the Dust Settled” is a story about my father and the type of character that he was; always positive always looking forward. I believe that’s why Betty liked my father. She possessed that same type of personality. All of her characters showed that.”  —– Perry Woodfin

AND !!! there’s a little surprise at the end of Perry’s show from Whidbey AIR host Annie Zeller Horton.  – Enjoy.  And thank you for supporting community generated public radio on Whidbey Island.
