The British Breakfast presents:

ON 1/1/05, WRIR 97.3 LPFM Richmond, Virginia went on the air. With the hard work of a few very special volunteers, all was set up and ready to go for Jessica Reilly and I to broadcast, live, the first music show (The British Breakfast) in its’ snug time slot of  Saturday’s 9AM, 2PM GMT. All went well without a major hitch. This morning, you will here this live pre-recorded broadcast (with some minor hitches and strange noises) and an occasional interruption necessary for underwriting, promos, PSA’s etc.

I noticed a few things while putting this show together: Jess was professional sounding having been a DJ on a great Charlottesville Station. I was a nervous nellie. I stuck to a “radio” theme. Jess played very cool and some modern stuff. As I still do sometimes, I forgot to press a button or two. When recording, you can hear the social media noise “bink” throughout the show. I suppose this was also heard live.  And happily, you hear two music lovers sharing a special moment together and with our beloved Richmond and world community. Fortunately, Sean Reilly, now Jess’ husband, was able to record this show for posterity. This morning, it has been unearthed for the first time in 15 years and presented to you in anticipation of WRIR’s 15th anniversary party on 2/1/20. Thanks WRIR to all the present and past volunteers that continue to make this radio station a reality. Cheers, Gene

Tuesday Breakfast Blend presents:

Ahhh, yes. The first daffodils have made their way up through the dirt and into bloom. A warm breeze sifts through the city carried on the wings of birds back from their yearly travels. Their chatter breathes through your window as the early sun peeks in to say hello. There is nothing like the coming to life of Spring in Richmond. Soon enough the inch worms will be swinging from the youthful bloomed crepe myrtles, clinging to your cutoff band tee to say hello and excuse me please. Ahhh, Spring.

Spring into… um… SPRING, with tunes both local and abroad, here on the Tuesday Morning Breakfast Blend, on your local independent radio station WRIR!
