Another week, another thirty or so options for shows to check out in Richmond! At 5pm, I’ll include a preview of the “Goodbye Garbers” premier featuring Peace Beast and the RVA Punx Picnic, plus I’ll give away tickets to see Andrew Bird as well as Neon Indian at The National and Astronautalis (pictured) at The Camel!
On today’s episode of The Commonwealth of Notions, I have Dave Watkins in the studio. The release of “Alive In Richmond” from The Colloquial Orchestra will be out in a few days and we will be talking about the project extensively. Previewing the record as well as highlighting several of the artists that have been a part of the project over the years!
Look below for the playlist!
As Always, Thanks for Tuning In and Supporting All Things Local!
Hello listeners! Galaxy Girl here, back this week with EVEN MORE stylistic variety than I usually play (and I try to play a lot of variety anyway!). I’ve got songs by Songhoy Blues, Pizzicato Five, The Pooches, Suburban Lawns, MIA, The Normal,Gil Scott-Heron, PWR BTTM, Handsome Boy Modeling School, AND MORE!
Lots of songs I’ve never played for you before. Enjoy! 6-8am on WRIR 97.3 fm Richmond Independent Radio and wrir.org/listen.
I love reggae harmony vocal groups, and you’ll hear a bunch of them on this week’s program: a new track from The Frightnrs, classics from the Mighty Diamonds, the Congos and more. I also have some British folk-rock cued up for you.
Caroline, a new WRIR world music trainee, will be my guest co-host. She’s going to impress you with the two sets she’s selected: an African one that ranges from Kenya to Senegal, and one from the Middle East with a bunch of artists new to me, plus Omar Souleyman. Caroline and I are both big Omar Souleyman fans, but we’re not in the same league as the two guys pictured above.
