Dogwood Tales In-Studio Session

The Harrisonburg-based alt-country duo Dogwood Tales came by In Your Ear studios in Richmond to play a live set for an audience during Member Appreciation Week at WNRN. Kyle Grim and Ben Ryan, the group’s founders, shared some new songs that were written and recorded throughout the duration of the pandemic.

“25” mourns the death of a close friend at a young age, while still wanting to be grateful for the gift of life. “I just wanna wake up and feel like I’m alive / Cause I’ve got some cousins that didn’t see 25.”

Dogwood Tales’ latest self-titled EP is out now on WarHen Records, and they’ve got another EP coming out this fall. You can listen to and watch their full In Studio Session at the link below.

Hear Together: LiftPD

Made up of medical professionals, student volunteers, and fitness instructors, LiftPD is a nonprofit organization in Richmond that offers free, small-group exercise classes for those living with Parkinson’s Disease. What started as a unique concept funded by a Parkinson’s Foundation Community Grant has now served over 70 individuals living with Parkinson’s (or other forms of Parkinsonism) over the past year, with the help of over 90 volunteers from local VCU professional programs.

The program uses high intensity disease-specific exercise training to help participants maintain and improve strength, balance, and mobility. By focusing on the repetition of workouts that target each person’s specific needs, LiftPD helps slow disease progression, and in some cases, even regain previously lost function.

We spoke with VCU physical therapist, and one of the founding members of LiftPD, Bobby Hand, for this Hear Together profile. You can listen at the audio link below and learn more about LiftPD on their website.

Jim Lauderdale In-Studio Session

Americana singer-songwriter Jim Lauderdale came by the station in Charlottesville to play a couple songs from his new album, Game Changer, out on August 26th. The cheerful lead single “That Kind Of Life (That Kind Of Day)” cruises on wishing good times to whoever’s listening: “Go through, don’t go away / And have that kind of life, that kind of day.” He also played “We’re All We Got” from Game Changer, a timely reminder about bridging the great divide of relationships, at home and beyond.

Jim went back to his 2021 release Hope to play “Memory,” which was co-written with longtime collaborator and late Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter. Check out the full set from WNRN’s studio below!
