It’s our second Tuesday of radio madness. Stream it at 101.5 The Valleys’s Music Place.
Tonight’s show features music from Janis Martin, the late Halifax County native who once had a shot at rock ‘n’ roll stardom before her career fizzled in a scandal that would barely make today’s tabloid radar. Read more about Martin and about “Virginia Rocks! The History of Rockabilly in the Commonwealth,” the two-CD collection that features her and other performers from that long-gone era.
And I’m tracking “Millions,” from the recent Eternal Summers album, “Correct Behavior.” Roanoke-based Eternal Summers is playing a series of (rare) Roanoke shows at The Bazaar next month. Get details.
