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!

Cosmic Connections is a loose narrative based music show exploring forgotten music, genre crossroads and mash ups. Every week David Ace presents found sounds curated to lead the listener through various themes and topics including Dreams, Space and Freedom. A mixer of music from the past fused with the present to create a different vision for the future. All of these things presented at the beginning of the week to present a show not bound by time or place. Deeper than first perceived, each week we explore the cosmic connections.

Whatever I Want hosted by DJ MINESWEEPERFORTHEPC

WHATEVER I WANT is the sonic equivalent of competing in a pretzel eating competition that doesn’t allow you to drink any water. if it were a movie, it’d be a mix between Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and Jean-Luc Godard’s King Lear. it is musical chaos, it is nonsensical, sometimes it is unrelenting in its struggle to take itself seriously. but it’s serious about its mission to provide you with a wide array of bangers from all over the world. whatever it is, it’s what DJ MINESWEEPERFORTHEPC wants.

“I woke up early this morning just to hear the bears sing. It’s not like any other morning. It’s not the same old thing.”

Wake up with Derek Sunshine for plenty of strum, thrum, jangle and kerraaang as he plays music with lots of guitars, drums and other noise makers.
