Activate! on WRIR 4-14-22 (filling in for Mike Rutz)

Mike Rutz’s show Activate! on WRIR is known around the station as one of the most challenging shows to do, especially since you’re sitting in for Mike who does it every week.  He’s used to it.  It’s an audio music calendar featuring music from bands and artists who will be playing in the Richmond area over the next week.  So you have to do a lot of research for it in a short amount of time and also find music to play which should represent the artists appropriately.  Do you play the new single?  Or do you play an old favorite?  What do you play by local artists who listeners may or may not know?  It’s fun, but you want to do it justice.

I sat in for Mike on Thursday and even though it’s a relief to find plenty of music to play and plenty of live dates to promote, there is always so much more that you could play and highlight.  And that speaks highly of Richmond’s live music scene which is pretty cool.

StudioB RVA – Doug Nunally – The Newlin Music Prize

Doug Nunally runs the online Richmond-area music magazine The Auricular and has spearheaded the creation of the new Newlin Music Prize,  “an award given to the best full-length album from the Richmond-Petersburg, VA metropolitan area based solely on artistic merit without regard to style or popularity.

Named after musical prodigy, VCU professor, and performer Dika Newlin (1923-2006), the prize launched in 2022 to award its first ever award for albums released in the previous calendar year. The winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize in the hope of fostering future recordings and performances.”
