I got a fever! And sadly I’m not talking about the epic Christopher Walken skit on SNL. I’m talking about the World Cup. Though, an image of Christopher Walken playing defender for Germany would be a great image or meme to see. And sadly too, because of the time difference and life itself, I can only catch quick score updates on the FIFA app. So, yes, I’m a bad fan.

About 50 residents from communities near Swift Creek Reservoir came out to the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors Meeting last night to support a remand of a proposed development.
The proposed commercial development would have added more than 200 homes. Many of the homes would be age restricted and require an assisted living facility.
Some of the details bothered residents such as Heather Mitchell who noted that the development included 25 acres underwater.
“You can’t build on water. That was another reason why I didn’t support it.”
Summer has barely began (not officially, I know), and already you may think that I’m throwing in the towel when it comes to lining up some good shows. You may think I’ve grown soft and lazy when coming up with themes. Whatever you think after hearing this week’s World Music Show (6/23), know this: I’m just a tad cramped for time.
Surrounded by some of Richmond’s biggest brewers, Senator Warner said there are two ways to combat the President’s recent decision to impose tariffs.
Ok, that headline is clearly a play on the cliche. But, I’d like to confess that I do have some “daddy issues” for this week’s World Music Show (6/16). And the issues lie squarely with me in that, being a father, I have no problem with sharing my World Music tastes and library with my kids.
Don’t let that title scare you. On this week’s World Music Show (6/9) neither of those things will happen. However, it is a reference to one of the first tracks we’ll be hearing from the latest CD by Angelique Kidjo. But more on that in a moment.
For the roundabout overview, for those in a rush, this week’s show will be filled a bit of new music, a bit of 2-Tone music, some Irish tracks and a chunk of percussion.
The new two-way bike lane in Richmond got an official ribbon cutting earlier today (6/1/18) with the help of Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney, who said it’s all about connectivity and more bike lanes in the future.
It’s one of my favorite times of year but it has nothing to do with the seasons or the upcoming Father’s Day holiday (though, I do have a tiny wish list of possible gifts). On the contrary, it’s the time when I cull together my annual or semi-annual World Music Show “covers” edition (6/2). And what that means for you is that for two hours you’ll get to hear some really fantastic versions of some popular and not-so-popular Rock, Pop and even Rap tunes done with a World Music beat.
A public forum and walking tour of what’s to come when Richmond’s new Bus Rapid Transit Line launches next month was held downtown yesterday (5/30).
It’s tired and perhaps a tad trite, but I do have to say that this week’s World Music Show (5/26) is going to be very global. I mean, just looking over my list, you’ll hear music from Palestine, Italy, Senegal, Sweden by way of New York and practically all points in South America will be covered.
So let’s start exploring.
