The Florida Folk Show has been a part of the WMNF family since January 23, 2003.

With host Pete Gallagher, Gary Horrell, Jim Mason and Ronny Elliott.

Past co-host include Bobby Hicks, Kelly Green, Raiford Starke, Meredith Bogush and Jessica Rose Powell.

Defining Florida folk music is very difficult. Everyone has their own idea what makes a song a Florida folk song. Those who like traditional folk often discount contemporary folk, and vice versa. To us, it has less to do with rules and more to do with soul. Does the song or songwriter or performer have a Florida soul? Can you feel it? I hope the Florida Folk Show will help capture that soul, step up interest in the genre and, maybe, inspire some new Florida songwriting.

Maddon arranged for Bobby to have access to Tropicana  Field, including the dressing rooms and dugouts during the 2014 season when, in June the Rays were the worst team in baseball. Bobby’s blessing of the bats and gloves and basepaths, even Chris Archer’s arm and Grant Balfour’s necklace (during a game!) helped the team make the largest comeback in major league baseball history, when the Rays finished the season one game from the playoffs six months later. These are exclusively offered by the Florida Folk Show in honor of one of Florida’s greatest Floridians, Bobby Henry, Seminole medicine man!
