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

Quite simply, my favorite 28 UK songs of 2019 from 28 all the way to number 1. Enjoy the show. I’ve got to really zip it to get all these songs in. I’ll be posting live. Cheers Gene

One kinda “Christmas” Tune but all in all, a British Breakfast kind of presentation of new and old from the 70’s and beyond with emphasis on the 21st Century and new releases by The Proper Ornaments, Shopping, Dry Cleaning, Squid, Mealtime, Smoke Fairies, Tinder Sticks and Peggy Sue. Also missing groups discovered during the MySpace daze. Next week, a refurbished Holiday UK extravaganza! Cheers Gene

The Canterbury Scene. is it a place?, a scene?, a group of people?, a sound? a way of thinking? a trip? A passing thought? All or none of the above? Tune in as special Co-Host George Nuckolls and myself explore just a smidgen of what this glorious sub-genre brought us.  Cheers Gene

So this is the skinny on tomorrow’s show. It’s the Richmond Marathon so I’m leaving now, yes 17 hours before the show to make it to the studio on time. After much deliberation, I’ve decided this is going to be a 20th Century show partially because the thought that it’s almost 2020 is freaking me out a little. Five sets of songs will be spun from five different sub-genres. This song is from one of those sub-genres. Fun show to throw together. Let’s have some fun BOWLING FOR RUNNERS. Cheers Gene 9AM. 2PM GMT WRIR 97.3FM Richmond, Virginia USA www.wrir.org The British Breakfast WRIR 97.3 fm Richmond Independent Radio
