For our Holiday Show this year we have the usual assortment of old time and bluegrass Christmas music, plus tunes for the Solstice, wassails and a few Klezmer tunes. But what is extra special is 15 members of the Richmond Sacred Harp Singers (here's their website: ) packed in to WRIR's live room for some early 19th century shape note hymns. This is going to be great so give it a real listen! Otto and Josh
If you like this program, you can listen live every Tuesday night from 7-9pm, Eastern Time, on WRIR - - 97.3 LPFM in Richmond VA. There are many other fantastic programs on WRIR, Richmond Independent Radio. Listen & support our station! Thanks.
