About In Your Ear

In Your Ear is a live performance radio series created completely in RVA. It features highlights of JAMinc's enduring house-style concert series held monthly in the acoustically perfect confines of In Your Ear Studio A in Shockoe Bottom. Former board member Robbin Thompson and his partner Carlos Chafin collaborated with JAMinc in 2004 to launch these musical close encounters and we're now well beyond the century mark in total concerts with many available here on VPM Music for live streaming. Our concert nights always include a sumptuous pot luck buffet pre-show, and a chance to experience a range of artists in the most intimate of settings. So visit to find out what's up next.

In Your Ear is produced and hosted by JAMinc president Tim Timberlake...most recent shows feature just one performer or group for the full hour with occasional "double-header" editions. The genre range has broadened widely, from roots, folk, blues and bluegrass to piano jazz, bolero and even Turkish pop. JAMinc is grateful to VPM Music for affording us the opportunity to share this music with its listeners, either on air or online. We hope you'll join us either way...or maybe both! We would like to sincerely thank our current underwriters for In Your Ear: Digital Video Group, Threshold Counsel PC, Fralin Pickups, Virginia Humanities/Virginia Folklife Program, the Robbin Thompson Endowment for Youth in Music, the Scott Street family, JAMinc founder Wally Thulin, the Graduate Hotel Richmond and the members of VPM.
