This year we’ll visit Old North Dayton and Five Oaks – plus the western suburb of Trotwood.

We’ll find out how people are coping with ongoing changes in the local economy and learn about the dreams they have for themselves and their neighborhoods.

Five years ago, here at WYSO, we found a room full of old and dusty audio tapes in a moldy basement room. They contained programs going back to WYSO’s first broadcast in 1958.
