HO-HUM! NOTHING MUCH HAPPENING TODAY You should listen to Open Source RVA on WRIR at 2PM and hear from members of the PLUMAS organization at VCU — Jessica Moreno-Caycho, Diego Orbegoso and Ana Diaz Casos. The Latin-American campus group (pictured) is meeting tomorrow — Inauguration Day — with Virginia Commonwealth University President Michael Rao about the possibility of VCU becoming a Sanctuary Campus and resisting future student deportation efforts by the Trump administration. Also on the Source, we welcome the Bijou Film Center’s Terry Rea and James Parrish as they promote their “Facing Facism: Time Capsules” event happening this weekend and next. The mini-festival of film about the effects of totalitarian regimes includes classics from directors as diverse as Louis Malle, Federico Fellini, Costa-Gavras and Charlie Chaplin. We also feature another dramatic episode of Curtain Call, produced by the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle. This week, Sifter’s Jerry Williams and Style Weekly’s Rich Griset and Claire Boswell review 5th Wall’s production of “Luna Gale” and Quill Theatre’s “The Top of Bravery.” Hey, who needs Lee Greenwood, Tony Orlando and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir when you’ve got Richmond’s audio news digest?

Mr. Tangerine Man begins his Reign of Error today. Damn right, I got the blues!

TONIGHT on The Almanac I fulfill your bucket list Mandy More a la A Walk To Remember style by helping you be in two places at once. “How???” you implore, agonizingly? Well folxxx, in radioland, anything is possible, and we’ve got a big ol’ weird cuspy time in the forecast for tonight.

That’s right, babes. It’s the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp, and there’s some serious polarity itb. I liken it to a balloon tied to the back of the chair of the birthday human at Golden Corral (maybe I’m projecting my childhood onto y’all or something)–wanting to fly foot (string)loose and fancy free, but also being tied down to your duty and practicality–in this case, the balloon that softly screams, “IT’S THIS CHILDFOOL’S BRRRTHDAY, Y’ALL. THEY ARE SPECIAL. AND YOU KNOW THAT NOW BECAUSE OF ME.”

You get the best of both worlds on Zodiac Audio Almanac tonight, no need to choose sides, you can have it all. Just like Mandy Moore.

Sweater, Butterfly Temporary Tattoo, and Saving yourself for marriage not included.

Miss anything? Want to listen again?

Good Afternoon,

I won’t lie. Today’s episode of The Commonwealth of Notions is going to get a bit strange. It’s been a crazy week and I think the show has been inspired by these twists and turns. It’ll be about reflections in sound and thought. Enjoy? Cheers!

As Always, Thanks for Tuning In and Supporting All Things Local!

Hi listeners! I’ve been getting in touch with my old 3-6AM All-Nighter roots, and working to bring you a fun variety of music this week. When times get dark, I get silly. It’s how I cope. We’ve got orange songs. Rebel songs. Misbehavin’ songs. Chip music polka. Surf rock. Fancy covers of dirty-sounding songs. Music from genres I don’t even know the names of!!! It runs the gamut! I hope you enjoy the show!
