The Bopst Show — Episode 1

Another Richmond fixture scorned leaps from the ashes. Introducing The Bopst Show.

Back in March, Chris Bopst was unceremoniously screwed over by WCLM 1450 AM, and he took it upon himself to depart. Rightfully so as he was passed over for Kirby Carmichael – yeah, just click that. You’ll understand the outrage.

As is their way (see this guy), RVANews jumped on the chance to give this recently-silenced voice of Richmond the chance to reach at least a snippet of his former audience, and hopefully give the n00bz a chance to see where it’s at. Thus we have The Bopst Show, a weekly podcast available only on RVANews that blesses us all with the DJ stylings of The Mr. Chris Bopst.

A few things you should know about the man behind the magic:

1. He was in GWAR.

2. His podcasts are like the most wonderfully irreverent and eclectic mixed tape dropped down from heaven with a parachute made of angel wing feathers.

3. Oh yeah, HE WAS IN GWAR.

But seriously, about number 2, while at WCLM, Bopst was known for sticking it the man and mixing up genres. He’s doing the same thing here, giving you a great sampling of the familiar, vaguely familiar, and the “Hmm I have no idea what this is but it was exactly what I wanted to listen to.”

I’d recommend putting Bopst in your weekly must-listens for work – but keep your headphones on as there is some “explicit” content every now and then.
