PITTSTON, Pa. – WVIA television will air a special encore performance of the 2008 George Wesley Homegrown Music Concert episode on Saturday, July 23 at 9pm, re-airing again at 11pm.


George Wesley, who succumbed to cancer on July 19, had recorded numerous times over the years with WVIA’s George Graham and had served as an inspiration to many regional musicians.

WVIA sends their condolences to the family and friends of George Wesley and airs this episode in his memory.
