Lydia’s Son’s Show

  My annual mother's day tribute to my late mother.

Since yesterday was Mother's day and I don't get to celebrate it anymore since my mother has since passed,I've been taking The Monday Morning Breakfast Blend's the day after and paying tribute to her by playing some of her favorite songs.

My mother was a very musical person, and I inherited my love of music from her.

Because of her,I grew up exposed to some of the most beautiful songs in the great American song book.

As a child,I would beg my mother to turn off that horrible "old people's music".

Now,of course,some 35 odd years later,it's the purest music I know.

So here's hoping that wherever she may be,she's dancing and singing along!

WRIR = The Gold Standard For Community Radio

  In the 6 years that WRIR has been on the air,it has established itself as the gold standard for community radio in the country.

Not only are we the largest and most successful LPFM in the country,when congress and the senate was deciding whether or not they wanted to expand the Prometheus Radio Project (the bill that allows for licencing LPFM radio stations across the country),WRIR was cited as a shining example of the bills success.

We certainly couldn't have done any of this without YOU and your support over the last 6 years!

This radio station belongs to YOU,the people of Richmond!

Please continue to show your support by donating whatever you can to keep this most worthy Richmond institution growing!

Plus,I'll be playing the interview I did with Pretty & Nice last week including some songs they recorded live in our studios!
