Join us this Saturday, June 25 for a special Vagabonds Shoes tribute to the Big Man. We’ll play some of the music that inspired Clemons, such as King Curtis and James Brown, as well as some stuff you probably haven’t heard (did you know he played tambourine on a Janis Ian tune?) and, of course, his work with the E Street Band (at least as much as streaming rules allow).  If you’re from New Jersey (and who in Charlottesville isn’t?), you’ll want to tune in and pay your respects to the Boss’s right hand man.  RIP: Clarence Clemons.

You can vote for WTJU as best radio station in the annual Best of C’Ville.  Curiously, none of our DJs are listed for best DJ, but, you don’t have to vote in that or any category if you don’t want to.  You can even opt to just vote for WTJU as best radio station. Why would you want to do that?  Well, for one thing it is the best radio station.  And, secondly, if the station wins, well, it’ll get all those people who haven’t heard us curious about what’s going on and maybe they’ll tune in…and vote for us next year, and well, you see how this could be a snowballing phenomenon even during the summer months.
