Leave it to Cleaver Sunday September 17 : Planet Music

In response to and in honor of last night’s Richmond Symphony Orchestra’s amazing presentation of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets” , tonight’s show will feature songs that have planets listed somewhere in the title, the worlds..or even in your mind:). For the sake of nostalgia, Pluto may be included -(though ironically wasn’t in Holst’s because it hadn’t been discovered).




Listen to this rendition of Holst’s “Jupiter”. I felt like I heard parts of soundtracks from a lot of movies!

Leave it to Cleaver Guest Sunday September 3: The Return of Sam Stone

Sam Stone 

I have known Sam Stone for many years and for what seems like several lifetimes for the both of us… He has been a constant presence in the Richmond, Indiana musical scene over the past few years..playing at Prophet Fest, Lyricist’s Corner and Songwriters Row (Joe, what the heck is the difference?)

I think he’s been on the radio show at least twice and I’m glad to have him back this Sunday…Here’s a bit of a bio and some info about where to find his music:

Sam Stone is an experimental acoustic singer/songwriter who incorporates folk, reggae, hip-hop, funk, and blues influences into his music to produce catchy hooks and rhythmic lyrics. He calls Richmond, IN (the Rose City) his home, and the city’s transient musical history deeply influences his artistic direction.
