Episode 121 - Woody Hanson

WOODY-HANSON-1200.jpg

Woody Hanson's family arrived in this part of Florida in 1866...that’s basically when Fort Myers came to be. His roots go back to Manuel A. Gonzalez - the first civilian resident here after the fort.

He owned and operated a real estate firm for 40 years before closing it a couple of years ago to move to Dublin, Ireland to get a PhD from Trinity College - which he’s still working toward. 

He’s also maintained a close relationship with Florida’s Seminole and Miccosukee Indians - his family’s connection with the tribes dates back to his grandfather W. Stanley Hanson, who was known as “the White Medicine Man.”

Episode 113 - Max Hatt and Edda Glass

MAX-HATT-AND-EDDA-GLASS-2379.jpg

Max Hatt & Edda Glass are a musical duo who were awarded the Grand Prize at the International Mountain Stage / NewSong Competition. Their music is kinda hard to classify, but it’s kind of jazzy Bossa Nova folk that makes you stop and listen...or at least made me do so. Their first collaboration was a Bossa Nova party band, which took them everywhere from the Pacific Northwest to the Rocky Mountain states and as far south as Santa Fe, NM. They eventually wound up at the Lincoln Center in New York City in 2014.
