I recently had the opportunity to sit down and discuss my life, creative impulses, and current exhibition 'This Must Be The Place' with local radio extraordinaire Tim Bowring as part of his show ZERO HOUR on Richmond Independent Radio. Tim is a local radio veteran here in Richmond, having interviewed many artists and other interesting people over the years, so it was a true pleasure sitting down and talking to him. I would encourage anyone in the Richmond area or beyond to tune in to WRIR 97.3 FM (or http://wrir.org/listen/) on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month at 11:30 AM EST to check out Tim's interviews.
Our conversation originally aired on March 2nd, 2018, but you can stream it at any time via the link below. Enjoy!
Zero Hour, hosted by Tim Bowring: 2nd and 4th Friday at 11:30 AM
Zero Hour’s mission is to identify and interview interesting people from various walks of life. We all know interesting people: They are passionate about something and devote themselves completely to it. They know what they want and are brave enough to go after it. They try new things. They don’t hide their quirks. They avoid the bandwagon and are often intent on forging their own paths. They are always learning and they share what they discover. Finally, they don’t worry about what others think of them. Interesting people are true to themselves wherever they are, whomever they’re with, and whatever they’re doing.
Does this remind you of someone you know? Interesting people surround us and this show will use the foregoing criteria to help identify them. You yourself could probably recommend 2 or 3 subjects for this show. These are not shrinking violets; in fact, interesting people have a special magnetism. They tell incredible stories and lead unusual lives that generate fascinating interviews.
In its first incarnation, Zero Hour was a forum for interviews with visual artists, curators, critics, and editors to investigate “the why” of visual arts. Blackbird, Virginia Commonwealth University’s online journal of literature and the arts, has archived many of the original Zero Hour programs.
