[image-1] A double shot of espresso doesn’t always cut it for that long morning commute. Fortunately, local DJ Richard “Box” Bachschmidt is spicing up Monday through Friday mornings with his new live steaming radio show under the familiar title, “Box in the Morning” — and he’s doing so out of a Mount Pleasant creative agency office, TRIO. On-air date is officially set for Mon. April 30 at 6 a.m. sharp, with a comedy-centric launch party slated for Fri. April 26 at Theatre 99.

Box is no stranger to the radio industry, as he’s been stirring up stimulating conversation over the air for nearly 25 years, most recently at 105.5 The Bridge. Eschewing the constraints of traditional radio, Box will bring to the online airwaves a unique, uninhibited roundup of topics to his already-established audience by featuring local musicians, entrepreneurs, artists, and restaurant owners.

No case of FOMO necessary if you want the 411 on local happenings and you’re not a morning person —  the show will also be available as a podcast after airing weekday mornings from 6 to 10 a.m.

Stop for by Theatre 99 on Thurs. April 26 at 8 p.m. to launch Box’s new show with improv from Brandy Sullivan and Greg Tavares plus stand-up comedy from Jason Groce. Tickets are available at Theatre99.com.
