“What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you’ll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres.”
KaineWatch ended a short while ago … our RVA guy is gonna be Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential running mate! Whether you like his politics or not, you gotta admit it’s exciting to have a local guy on the ticket. He’s been my city council representative, mayor, lieutenant governor, governor, senator, even DNC chair. He lives near me, and I noticed local news trucks out front of his house this afternoon. … Oh yeah, I’m DJing tonight 9-11pmEDT on WRIR, then again Saturday 6-8pm with Ben & Chaz from The Veins. Tune in!
On today’s Open Source RVA, we’re painting big and thinking large. In honor of the 5th annual Richmond Mural Project — unveiling new works today across the city — we welcome Richmond TImes-Dispatch columnist Mark Holmberg to talk about his recent controversial column on RVA’s growing culture of mural art. Do these large, colorful works reflect the city’s values, he asks, and shouldn’t there be more oversight? We also talk with Richmond artist Matt Lively about the art of making murals, and about the new multi-artist show (“Cahute”) he’s participating in at Glave-Kocen Gallery. We also welcome WRIR’s Shannon Cleary to preview this weekend’s big Commonwealth of Notions Vol. 6 music festival, happening at Gallery5 and Strange Matter. Make some noise and splash some color around with Open Source RVA! Listen in at 2PM on 97.3 FM and http://wrir.org/
Yes, it’s a momentous Thursday night. Just like every Thursday, though because it’s the occasion for the Paul’s Boutique show. So don’t let the devil blow your mind. I’m happy to do that for you. 9-11 pm!
