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

Quantum Live Radio hosted by DJ Chuck Stylez

Quantum Live Radio is a bi-weekly show that attempts to align the groove through the love of music every other Thursday on WRIR. Join Chuck Stylez as he explores the energy of Funk, Electronica, Disco and Psychedelic Soul.

So, lock in, “Free Your Mind”, dance (if you’re so inclined), as Stylez brings forth the “just below the surface” rhythm and groove on QUANTUM LIVE RADIO!

 

The Young Professional hosted by DJ Tommy Beth

As a young professional, this show aims to showcase fresh/fresher/fresh-ish music tastes. Mostly indie, rock, folk, oldies, and pop, and excursions to country, punk, adult standards, and whatever else. Occasional theme/genre show. DJ Tommy Beth can’t promise a little of everything, but they can promise a little of a lot. Or at least, a lot of a little.

Welcome to The Lunar Orbit, bringing you the best spacey, atmospheric, and hypnotizing post-rock, math rock, progressive, instrumental, and shoegaze music that we can possibly find. Basically, if the band belongs to the Post Consumer Brand’s line of products we’ll be playing it.

 

Sit back, relax, tune in, or tune out and let yourself get carried away into the outer reaches of the universe.
