Wide Ear Folk/Life is a Mixtape presents:

Programming Note: Hi, it’s Jay.  But not the usual Jay.  I’m Dr. Jay, and it’s my honor to have been asked to sub for one of my mentors, Jay Sandusky this week. So I’ll be your host for the Life is a Mixtape program Tuesday 5/14 from 5-7 PM on WRIR 97.3FM Richmond Community Radio.

Where my show, Alternative Milestones (which airs every Thursday afternoon from 1-3PM), spends most of its time in the the history of alternative music and gets its variety from the different sub-genres and eras of alternative music, Life is a Mixtape spends most of its time in the now, playing mostly new music from many different genres. I’ve really enjoyed this past week preparing the playlist I’m going to present and I hope people dig it.
NOTE – There’s 2 minutes of silence at the start of the archive of this show.  Still not sure what was up with that.

    Yes, something was playing remotely over the air that wasn’t streaming. Took a couple of minutes to figure it out.

  • Brian Thomson says:

    There is a 2.15 minute lead in of ‘nothing.’
