Every weekday morning, join Bob Mosolgo for a double-feature, Decade of Difference. Bob will highlight on an artist or group that has been creating music for at least a decade. First, he’ll feature a tune by that group around 7:50. Then, he’ll fast forward 10 years and play another song by that same artist an hour later.
Decade of Difference is supported by Bank of the James.
