After a busy summer of live performances, Jonny Dreads and the Mystiks return to the WYSO studios.  The band performed a live set on Kaleidoscope and talked with host Juliet Fromholt about their latest lineup, writing and recording and their plans for 2015.

Jonny Dreads and the Mystiks will perform on Friday, November 28th at Peaches Grill in Yellow Springs.

Gary Shteyngart's memoir "Little Failure" has recently  been issued in a paperback version. The book came out last year in hardcover. At that time I tried to book another interview with Gary (more about that later) and I reviewed it for the Cox Ohio newspapers. Here's my review:

Miss Lissa and Co. joined Shakin' Dave in WYSO studios for the November 2014 edition of Shake's Hall Pass.  The band performed original material and put its mark on classic blues tunes, talking to Shakin' Dave about the mutual love for the genre.
