I am Sam Bodary. I have been the summer intern for Niki Dakota on Excursions for the past three or so months. One of my responsibilities is to post here when we have live guests on the show, be it an interview, performance, or a little of both. Welp, I have run into a small predicament.
I was the live guest. This may read a bit awkwardly.
Davis Rogan dropped in to chat with Niki today and link Dayton to the heart of New Orleans. He shared stories of his experiences as a DJ and growing up in New Orleans, as well as his work with the HBO show Treme. Racing in at the last minute, he was joined by Paul Sanchez, another New Orleans native, songwriter, and guitarist. We listened to songs from each of their records, with plenty of anecdotes mixed in throughout.
You can see Davis and Paul perform a solo/duet show tonight at 8pm at Canal Street Tavern.
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Susan Werner stopped by the studio on Monday following a show with the Springfield Arts Council just the previous night. Listen in to hear her talk about the importance of agriculture in the changing world and her recent album themed around farms. On top of everything, she even plays three songs live just for us.
Atlanta musicians Gillia and Kevin J stopped in just in time from the airport to join Niki at the end of today's show. They shared their soulful voices a cappella in studio, and brought a couple tracks to listen to.
DJ Sparechange will join them tomorrow for a free preformance. They will be performing at the King's Yard in Downtown Yellow Springs tomorrow from 4pm to 7pm for a FREE and all ages 4th of July celebration.
