WYSO was joined by many guests from the Human Race Theatre Company production of the musical Play it by Heart, which is being shown in the Loft Theatre in Dayton. Co-composer and lyricist David Spangler as well producing artistic director Kevin Moore discuss the origins of the play, David’s musical influences, and the empowerment of women in modern country music. Cast members Trisha Rapier and Kathryn Boswell even sing two phenomenal songs for us accompanied by Music Director Nils-Petter Ankarblom on the piano and Assistant Music Director Jay Brunner on the guitar.
Steve Bennish is a reporter for the Dayton Daily News. When Bennish is out on the streets of the city he always brings along his trusty camera and he takes many striking photographs. His new book contains numerous classic black and white photos of everyday street life in Dayton.
In this interview we tried to give listeners an opportunity to imagine what these photos look like. Then Bennish describes the various situations which produced them.
Josh Egeland and Jay Madewell are Dirty/Clean, a duo that combines synth, vocal and live drums for an exploration into disco, prog rock and more. The duo visited the WYSO studios for live set on Kaleidoscope and talked to host Juliet Fromholt about crafting their sound, their debut album Welt Am Draht and upcoming gigs.
Dirty/Clean will perform with Curse of Cassandra at the planetarium at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery on July 11th.
