music en Musician Jay Nash discusses "Rock for the River" concert <p><em>In 2004, a musician with roots in central and northern New York came up with an idea for a fundraiser to help preserve the St. Lawrence River. Every Fourth of July weekend since then, singer-songwriter Jay Nash has led a group of musicians in the "Rock for the River" concert in Clayton, which benefits the non-profit group "Save the River." The events have been so popular, this year they've added another concert on Labor Day weekend. WRVO's Catherine Loper recently spoke with Nash about how his passions for the river and music intersect.</em></p><p></p> Thu, 29 Aug 2013 11:57:05 +0000 Catherine Loper 43363 at Musician Jay Nash discusses "Rock for the River" concert Deal announced to keep The Sound Garden in Syracuse <p>It looks like The Sound Garden, a popular new and used music and videogame store in downtown Syracuse, will be staying put after all.</p><p><span style="font-size:14px">Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner Friday afternoon announced a deal has been reached on proposed legislation that would exempt games, videos and music from the provisions of the city's new secondhand dealer law. </span></p><p><span style="font-size:14px">Those provisions had forced the owner of the store to make plans to close down the Armory Square fixture.
