Open Source RVA Podcasts, Old and New

In the annals of broadcasting, there have been legendary lost episodes and there have been legendary LOST EPISODES. See the difference there. On this latest -- and might I add particularly interesting -- set of Open Source RVA programs now available for everyday use, we include the legendary LOST EPISODE of WRIR's weekly audio news digest. The one dated March 15, 2013. All caps and bolded.

That elusive piece of audio, as well as other fine hour-long installments, are now podcasted and ready for download.

It was an honor and a pleasure to have Jon Lohman join us for an extended interview on the June 7 show. We talked with Virginia's state folklorist about programming the Virginia stage at the Richmond Folk Festival, the new live recording he recently produced for Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes (more on that, and my participation, here), and details about his Virginia Folklife Program and its culture-enriching apprenticeships. Also on the show, we introduce our new initiative,  VOX RVA, an oral histories project co-sponsored by the Virginia Center For Latin American Art (for more on that, stay tuned to this channel).
