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 http://wrvo.org Musician Jay Nash discusses "Rock for the River" concert Children on Chief's Baseball http://wrvo.org/post/children-chiefs-baseball <p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p> Fri, 03 May 2013 17:07:00 +0000 Tim LaMay, Shannon Rosato & Leigh Rusyn 36384 at http://wrvo.org Children on Chief's Baseball Wait, Wait...
