  • Scott Elmquist

The music director and host of "Afternoons with Dash" on 103.7 The River also happens to serve as vice president of the RVA Beard League. So who better to make a play list for us in honor of Richmond's love of facial hair? You can hear it for yourself online at

1. Cake, "Mustache Man" — The title says it all.

2. The Beards, "If Your Dad Doesn't Have a Beard, You've Got Two Mums" — Not just a song, but a band about facial hair.

3. Gay Blades, "Why Can't I Grow a Beard?" — A pretty unknown band that asks the all important question.

4. Passion Pit, "Sleepyhead" — Most people have no idea what is being said in this song, but listen to the very end.

5. Battlemaster, "By Beard and Throne" — Some local RVA beard love.

6. ZZ Top, "Gimme All Your Lovin'" — Had to include a song from the most famous beards in music.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
