First of all, let me start by thanking the approximately 470 donors who contributed more than $47,000 during WRIR's Fall 2021 fund drive, topping our $45,000 goal (the highest goal we've ever set) and making this drive the second largest in our 16+ year history, trailing only this past spring.
One thing that long ago stopped surprising me about "The Sound of Surprise" (one of Richmond Independent Radio's favorite nicknames) is the generosity of our supporters. But you folks really went above and beyond this time! So let me give each of you a pat on the back. Or at least a fist bump. And if donating somehow slipped your mind, it's still not too late: just visit wrir.org and click on the red Donate button.
Now, on to the music. You may have thought you'd heard the last of WRIR's Halloween 2021 shows. But Global A Go-Go is here on the day in question (Halloween Sunday October 31, 1:00-3:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards on the wrir.org archive player, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site) bringing stories and sounds macabre, supernatural, demonic and bone-chilling from the Caribbean, Eastern Europe, England, Latin America and Africa. Now that's scary, kids!
