The Ramones were one of the most influential of the American punk rock bands of 30 years ago. The band originally consisted of four young men from suburban New York City. They decided to call themselves the Ramones and every member of the band used that name of Ramone. There was Joey Ramone, and Johnny Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone, and so on.

This spring marks the return of the Third On Third Outdoor Eclectic Market, which takes place on the corner of East Third and Bates Streets in Dayton.  Organizer Peter Benkendorff visited the WYSO studios to talk about the market, and this month's musical guests, Berachah Valley, performed a live set on Kaleidoscope ahead of their appearance at the market.

During the recording of their latest full-length album, Missionaries and Impostors, Starving in the Belly of the Whale produced several songs that didn't quite fit the theme of that release.  Those three songs had a theme of their own and form the band's new 7 inch EP, 4-13, which is being released in honor of Record Store Day 2015.  Ricky Terrell and Lacey Terrell visited the WYSO studios to preview the EP on Kaleidoscope and performed new versions of some older songs live on Kaleidoscope.
