Louisiana Dance Hall

LDH is rockin’ it again … in WRIR Fund Drive Style!

Bill Thomson

Thanks for tuning in and for your continued support over the years! We are in the home stretch of the WRIR Fall 2016 Fund Drive, so let’s keep the momentum going to cross the finish line with our $40,000 goal achieved! Hope you enjoy today’s mix of great covers by Louisiana artists as well as tracks you are VERY unlikely to hear anywhere else in central Virginia! And thanks also to the Dirty Bourbon River Show for visiting the studio last weekend to share some thoughts about the importance of independent community radio in general, and WRIR in particular!
