What the Fontaine?!: R.I.P. John Glenn (12/9/16)


What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you’ll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres.”

Astronaut John Glenn died yesterday. My dad would be very sad, being such a fan of the 1960s/70s space program. I’ll play a pair of songs for him. Then I’ve got music from a few bands playing Richmond this weekend. And a bunch of other stuff, tonight 9-11pmEST. THEN tomorrow (Sat) 3-5pm, I’ll be back to host the 80s-I-mean-75-99 show … with a feature on industrial bands!
