Welcome to your weekend and the community fire. Burrrr it is freezing out there this morning, 19 degrees when I woke up and it still is. Stay warm everyone.
David is out sick today, so it is just me in the studio. Get well David.
Walk In Peace,

It's the last day of January and it's cold. To be expected. Tonight will be a showcase of love songs, rage songs, dance songs, pop songs, punk songs, heavy songs and the right soundtrack for you to stay warm this evening! It's The Commonwealth of Notions!

"What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you'll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres."
Deflator Mouse? Remember that character from the cartoon TV show, The Tick? Jokingly named after Die Fledermaus ("the bat" in German), the title of a famous operatta by Johann Strauss II. Okay, well, after all the deflate-gate chat the last coupla weeks, I thought I'd try to put a spin on things. Anyhoo ... I'm up here tonight 9-11pmEST bringing you an assortment of music on this Friday night. Hope you're staying warm and getting set for the Super Bowl on Sunday!

Black Masala (pictured above) returns to Global A Go-Go this week. They're a gypsy-inspired brass band from Washington DC who damn near blew the doors down when they played in WRIR's Live Room back in June.
Black Masala is back in Richmond for another live performance -- they're at the Camel Friday night along with M.H. And His Orchestra and Love Logic. But before that, they'll be back in the Live Room on Global A Go-Go -- don't miss it!
