Hey everyone, Dr. Jay here.  It’s a thrill to be able to join WRIR.  I moved to Richmond from Rochester NY in August of 2023.  I had a show on the local listener-supported station there – WBER (Shout out to The Only Station That Matters!)

I’ve always had a passion for music, and have always sought out something other than the mainstream.  I remember being a 7 year old in the late 60s, calling my local AM station requesting In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

My love for alternative music and for music history has combined into the Alternative Milestones show.  Every week I highlight the people, the events, and the music that have milestone anniversaries (5,10,15,20 etc).  Scientific studies have proven that music and memory are connected, and my show will hopefully bring back fond memories of where you were and what you were doing when the music was new.

With so many eras and genres included under the “alternative music” umbrella, I guarantee a great variety during each show.  I have a blast researching these milestones and I’ll tell you about each one.  And maybe you’ll hear something that’s new to you as well.

I also post every day’s milestones on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/DrJayOnTheRadio.  If you see a milestone and want to comment or request a specific tune, I love interacting with listeners to ensure they’re hearing something they care about.

I hope you’ll join me Thursdays from 1-3 PM.

Long Live Independent Radio!

Rotating Shows

The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit hosted by The Haberdasher

Several years ago I was burnt out from years of business travel, long meetings, sales reports, and corporate America. I guess I was teetering on the edge of a midlife crisis. Luckily (for my wife), I found WRIR and, thus, the opportunity to host a radio show.

My show takes its name from the book written by Sloan Wilson. The novel is “about the search for purpose in a world dominated by business.” In the novel the main characters “share a struggle to find contentment in their hectic and material culture”.

I guess you could say my show is my own personal search – through music – in the middle of the night every Monday. So join me and I’ll bring you an out-of-the-ordinary mix of blues, soul, rock, funk, Americana, bluegrass and whatever else it takes to shake the work blues.

Oh and the name, the Haberdasher – well, that’s a story for another day. So tune in.
