 Commendable effort. Too bad this poster doesn’t list many Virginia-based shows. It missed several such as  The Cleveland Show, Vampire Diaries, and A Different World.

Fun interview with Prince’s 1st female keyboardist, Gayle Chapman (1978-1980). She reveals the real reasons for leaving the fold (Prince hired pianist and future collaborator Lisa Coleman as her replacement) and shares a hilarious Prince story involving “his skivvies” and toilet paper. lol

Maze featuring Frankie Beverly - “Southern Girl”, 1980

My love of Frankie Beverly nearly rivals my love of Prince & The Revolution. Frankie makes feel-good soul music. “Southern Girl” is the personal anthem of this Virginia chick ;)

Music Lover. Unapologetic Pop Culture Geek. I created this tumblr page because I was really, really bored one evening...

I also like to shoot videos (on camcorder, but mostly on smartphone) of things and moments that intrigue/surprise/amuse me. Spontaneous, quirky real-life vignettes.

I'm a geek when it comes to Virginia history. Some posts and reblogs may reflect that.

And yes, I am indeed a bored chick who lives in Virginia. Good ol' V.A.
