With Fontaine

What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you’ll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres. On any given week I might play punk, funk, rock, blues, hip-hop, jazz, reggae, electronica, country, rockabilly, new wave, industrial, African, metal, soul, classical, go-go, gospel, cajun, local music or whatever else I can think of. Often there are themes and occasionally local band interviews.

Fontaine has been an indie radio DJ in Richmond, VA for many, many years. In addition to hosting WTF since Summer 2008, she is among the rotating cast of DJs bringing you the 80s/90s/late70s show (End of the Century, Saturdays 3-5 PM) and the local band show (River City Limits, Saturdays 5-7PM).

What the Fontaine?!: 2 Years of Coronavirus (03/11/22)

It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since everything shut down due to the coronavirus. The last show I went to was on 3/12/20. But here we are (most of us) hanging in there. Tonight 9-11pmEST I’ll play songs “Corona”, “Virus” plus bands from that March show (Brower, Piranha Rama), and much more. Tune in.
