JAMinc Radio Shows
COMING SOON! Starting Saturday, October 21st VPM will begin airing JAMinc Presents . . . which will be a continuation of our long-running In Your Ear radio series with a new name. We’ll do 8 new shows to air Saturdays at 5pm.
In Your Ear Radio Show
All our concerts are carefully recorded on state-of-the-art multi-track gear to ultimately be a part of our JAMinc Presents series airing on VPM Music at 93.1 and 107.3 FM and Richmond’s innovative online radio station, The Breeze.
We cover many genres – including folk, bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles, even bolero and Turkish pop. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premiere acts from all over the country. In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity, inspiration and soul of live music. The archive of all 76 of our previous programs can be found on the VPM website.
Production funding of In Your Ear is made possible through the generosity of our sponsors, including Digital Video Group, Fralin Pickups, The Graduate Hotel, Threshold Counsel PC, The Virginia Folklife Program, the Scott Street Family and VPM Music.
Page Wilson was a larger-than-life singer, songwriter and radio personality who built a huge following for his epic public radio show, the Out O’ The Blue Radio Revue before his premature passing in 2011. Saturday nights were reserved by legions of loyal listeners who tuned in for his two-hour open house in the Chickahominy Swamp where Page created compelling theater of the mind and invited roving musicians into his kitchen to swap tales and tunes after plying them with gumbo, brisket and catfish whiskers.
His Kitchen guests included some of Americana’s most important artists, and thanks to Page’s heirs Jude Schlotzhauer and Virginia Blue Wilson, these priceless recordings made some three decades ago, have been carefully digitized to live again on both public and online radio as Page’s Kitchen. The series aired originally in the summer of 2021 and all are available on VPM for on-demand streaming.
Page was an early purveyor of what he termed “pure bred American mongrel music” from pivotal artists including Townes Van Zandt, Robert Earl Keen, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Delbert McClinton, Tony Rice, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, Indigo Girls, J.J. Cale and many more.
Beginning in March of 2023, Richmond’s innovative online radio station The Breeze began airing another extensive list of yet-unheard performances on Saturday nights at 8 o’clock and Sunday mornings at 10, as JAMinc presents Page’s Kitchen…The Swamp Sessions. The full sit-down as it happened, only slightly edited for clarity.
Listen out for the Good Humor Band, the Sun Rhythm Section, Kevin Welch, Maura O’Connell, Terry Garland, the Clancy Brothers, James McMurtry, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and so many others.
In late April of 2023, all the new Swamp Sessions began running on VPM Music on Thursday nights at 9pm, and will also stream on the VPM website on demand. These podcast-format programs are produced and hosted by JAMinc’s Tim Timberlake and we’re grateful to Digital Video Group, the members of VPM and the Scott Street Family for their production support.
