This weekend Vagabond Shoes is pre-empted by the 2012 Rock Marathon. We know you’ll miss us, but it’s all for a good cause, and the special programming is, as you’d expect, pretty special.  The Marathon continues on through to Monday, February 13.  If you haven’t been listening, you’ve been missing out on a week full-to-bursting with special radio tributes (covering everything from Dubstep to the career of John Lennon to classic soul music), specialty programs (check out the weeknight slots devoted to music from past decades), and live in-studio performances from standout regional bands (Borrowed Beams of Light, Mountains, Girl Choir, Fire Tapes and Corsair). You’ll want to super glue your dial to 91.1 FM and wtju.net all week long — the 2012 WTJU Rock Marathon is slated to be a music lover’s aural paradise.

Phone operators are standing by at 434-3959 to take your pledge. You can also click here to donate to WTJU’s Rock Marathon(Go left and hit the “Support WTJU” button)

Because that is what the WTJU Rock Marathon is all about – raising money so that the Sound Choice in Central Virginia can continue to be Virginia’s non-commercial, non-formatted radio alternative for not only rock music, but Classical, Folk, Blues, Jazz, Country, World Music and all of the sounds in between.
