Episode 14 - Pete & Mac Martin Remember Ben Hill Griffin III

Welcome to The Florida Folk Show podcast. In this episode, through the  words and recollections of Arcadia realtor and land manager Gordon “Mac”  Martin, we celebrate the life and times of a man known far and wide as  The Citrus King. We are talking about none other than the legendary Ben  Hill Griffin III of Frostproof, who died July 25, 2020 at the age of 78.  Early in his own career, Mac worked very closely with The Citrus King,  and shares with us some precious memories of one of Florida’s greatest  citizens. In addition to his own career in Florida land, Mac is also one  of Florida Folk Music’s best singer-songwriters. He has promised to  write a song about Ben Hill Griffin III and when it is ready, we’ll add  it to this podcast. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/floridafolkshow/support
