    By request we're re-releasing an old episode.  This is from 2016 when Studio B was still on terrestrial radio at 102.1 The X, aka XL 102, aka ALT 102.1 and probably several other monikers.  The station named changed several times over the years, as they do.  The playlist and show notes are below as they appeared in 2016.  Enjoy, and support local music!

    Doug Nunally - Newlin 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."

- Great to see the growth of the radio show into a global force -Richmond music in the spot light for more than 20 years, with a diverse selection of genres this podcast offers insight into a unique area of the United states that produces a wide spectrum of sounds. This is the go - to pod cast for Richmond!

Dan Gravelthroat ,

Best music podcast around!

A great eclectic mix of some of the greatest musicians and songwriters out of RVA (and the surrounding areas.) Episode offers something new and wonderful; no two episodes are alike! I particularly like the host and the announcer.
