Open Source RVA presents:
YOUR SOURCE FOR AUDIO FIREWORKS! On Friday’s patriotic July 3rd edition of Open Source RVA, heard at noon on WRIR 97.3 FM, we have a lively conversation with Richmond City Councilman Michael Jones. As racial justice protests continue across the city, the 9th District rep is co-sponsoring legislation that would ban the use of tear gas and rubber bullets by Richmond police. He also talks about the fall of Stonewall Jackson and the impending dismantlement of the other Confederate statues on city land. We also speak with 6th District City Council Candidate Allan-Charles Chipman (pictured) about his quest to unseat longtime incumbent Ellen Robertson. He discusses Mayor Levar Stoney’s performance during the protests and pandemic, and the special challenges faced by the city’s sprawling sixth district. ALSO we feature a new segment of Curtain Call, courtesy of the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle. This week, Jerry Williams talks with producing artistic director Joel Bassin from Firehouse Theatre about “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” the first live theatre production in the region — maybe the country — to be staged during the pandemic. Julinda D. Lewis joins Jerry to dissect the show, a one-man adaptation starring Billy-Christopher Maupin. IT’S A SOURCE FOR SORE EARS! Hear it at noon on WRIR 97.3 FM and http://wrir.org.
Playlist temporarily unavailable.
