Hey Listeners,

Four themes or directions tonight. We’ll start with the piano for the Green Book / Don Shirley set. Then it’s on to westerns inspired by the new Netflix project the Ballad of Buster Scruggs. At 10 PM or so we’ll give away a pair of tickets to see the Richard Thompson Electric Trio at The Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on Wednesday night. Then it’s on to Retro Richmond and some infamous Richmond concerts.

Thanks for listening.
