Róisín Murphygrew up with a love for her mother’s collection of seven-inches and Ireland’s lyrical culture. Her father’s personal hygiene habits also left an impression. ‘He would get into the bath every other week and fill it to the brim. Then get in for two hours, drink a bottle of wine and sing at the top of his voice winding up the whole neighbourhood.’
Róisín ended up leaving Ireland and moving to Manchester following the collapse of her parent’s marriage. When she was 12. The city became a stomping ground where her passion for bands and clubs ignited. She remembers a live gig from Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon’s Sonic Youth as a turning point.
‘They changed everything,’ Róisín says. ‘The next day I went down to the Record and Tape Exchange, sold all my U2 records and bought Daydream Nation. I became a music obsessive from then on.’

We have arrived to the last quarter of the year. Time of journeying inward for a season of sleep, however, winter is not upon us yet. This is Autumn and the first day of October. The harvest of our efforts is underway.
I am expecting Special Guests in studio this morning and one to join in over the phone.
In which I take the first 20 to get over myself and doofi (plural of doofus) out of my control
And then we party with some Libras…cue kazoo and airhorn
And then we talk about what Libras like
And then we get witchy and badd with the New Black Moon in Libra.
All this Libra activity can really, uh….tip the scales…ya know? brrhrrr more bad astrology jokes.

On Friday’s installment of Open Source RVA, we present a frank, in-depth interview with former Venture Richmond director Jack Berry about his candidacy for mayor and his vision for Richmond’s future. Berry talks about his plan to address the problem of poverty in the city, how to turn around public schools, his views on the Redskins training camp and Stone Brewing deals, his shepherding of the controversial Shockoe Bottom stadium plan (including those now-controversial emails recently unearthed by the Times-Dispatch’s Ned Oliver), CenterStage funding, Richmond’s high water rates, his contentious relationship with Oregon Hill residents, and how he would grade the administration of Dwight Jones, among many other topics. Also: We present another scene-chewing installment of Curtain Call, our bi-weekly segment on Richmond’s theater world produced by the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle and featuring Sifter’s Jerry Williams, and Style Weeklys Rich Griset and David Timberline. The Source is strong in this one! Listen at 2PM to Richmond’s audio news digest on WRIR 97.3 FM and http://wrir.org.
