Charleston’s nonprofit and noncommercial station Ohm Radio will celebrate one year of local broadcasting with a variety show, which will be more of a live theater production, as opposed to a concert. Think “The Grand Ole Opry” or “A Prairie Home Companion.”
The evening, hosted by Henry Riggs and Maari Suorsa of sketch comedy duo Nameless Numberhead, will include performances from Jordan Igoe (country folk multi-instrumentalist), Rock Out With Your Wiltrout (jazz quartet), Alan Fame (hip-hop mixed with a “punk rock philosophy”) and indie rockers Secret Guest.
Also performing will be the “spontaneous” a capella choir LASSO, marionette Mr. Bonetangles, additional comedy skits, live vinyl from Soul Preservation Society and an interview and performance with Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg.
All proceeds will benefit Ohm Radio and its upcoming 2016 broadcasts. It promises a little something for everybody and an opportunity to support the station’s mission of “providing local programming that promotes democracy, sustainability and a healthy community.”
