"What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you'll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres."
It's been one year since former Richmonder Jack Rose died of a heart attack, ending a wonderful musical career way too early. So let me play you a song or two of his. I'll also bring you music from Heks Orkest, who played a rare gig Wednesday night at Strange Matter. I've also got brand new Christmas music from Paul Ivey and Herschel Stratego (who are performing tonight at Sprout). And let's send good thoughts out to "queen of soul" Aretha Franklin, who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Tune in 9-11pmEST tonight.
