This morning the General manager of the Pisgah Inn, Rob Miller, called my boss and informed him that the Inn’s owner, Bruce O’Connell, had changed his mind and we would no longer be welcome at the Inn to do the show today, as had been previously arranged.

There was no explanation about why the arrangement was canceled, other than that they wanted to just get back to being an Inn.

Throughout the government shutdown of the Inn, we have heard from listeners who have also wanted to help support the Inn, through donations and patronage.

Our intention to do the show from the Pisgah Inn was to help support a local business that is a long-time client with WWNC, to give them three hours of free exposure, and an opportunity to talk about their operation and history. 

That will not be happening now.

I apologize for anyone who had made plans to visit the Inn during the show.
