Floyd G. HendersonFloyd Henderson was the morning "DJ" over radio station 1380 AM in Richmond, Virginia from the late 1980's through the early 2000's.  Floyd played music that was part of "The Great American Songbook" and featured many of the Big Bands of the 1930's and 1940's on his program.  The show ran from 6 - 9 on weekday mornings and I spent many days of my youth walking to school and listening to Floyd.  Floyd left 1380 AM in the early 2000's and took his show to radio station WHAP in Hopewell, Virginia.  The show was easily accessible throughout the Tri-Cities area by way of radio and online streaming.  After many years as Richmond's only Big Band Radio DJ, Floyd finally retired to spend time with his family and enjoy what life had to offer.  On June 20th, 2017, Floyd Henderson passed away at the age of 81.  We've decided to dedicate our Richmond Big Band Weekend to Floyd since he was such an inspiration in my life and so influenced the musical direction that I would take.  -Joe Enroughty
