As a sponsor of the Fall Line Festival, Sept. 5-6 at downtown Richmond venues, WDCE plans to be on the air around the clock over the coming weekend. I’m taking the 3-5 a.m. (EDT) Saturday shift. The music won’t be classical . . . well, there is that Kurt Weill set, kicked off by Jim Morrison & The Doors . . . and Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli playing “Limehouse Blues” . . . but I shouldn’t spoil all the surprises.
