He discusses with McCord his views on sequestration, what he will and will not compromise on to get a budget deal passed through Congress, and how he believes Delphi workers should have their pensions restored.
Saturday night marks the third annual Yelloween celebration in downtown Yellow Springs. Organizer Brother Bear visited the WYSO studios to chat with Niki Dakota about this year's event, which has a sci-fi theme. The celebration will feature live music from the Coffin Daggers, a New York-based surf punk band with a sci-fi twist of its own, that also stopped by the WYSO studios to share some music ahead of their live performance.
The Tombstone Tremblers have had their current lineup since early 2012 and have been working hard honing their garage rock sound throughout the year. The band recently completed recording an EP, which will be released later this year and is planning on a full length follow-up in 2013. The Tombstone Tremblers visited the WYSO studios to share some songs from their forthcoming album and perform live. They spoke with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about recording their EP and plans for the new year.

Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown and GOP state Treasurer Josh Mandel face off again Thursday evening in a Cincinnati TV studio. In Columbus last week, Mandel called Brown a liar, and Brown said the Republican can't be trusted.
Mandel has depicted the 59-year-old veteran Democrat as a career Washington politician, while Brown has described his 35-year-old challenger as opportunistic and more concerned about his next office than doing the job in the one he has.
