Ways To Connect

Around the country there are groups of women who sing at the bedsides of people who are sick or dying. It's called Threshold singing and there are choirs all over the United States, including one in Yellow Springs.

The idea was born in 1990 when Kate Munger was caring for a friend who was dying of AIDS in California. After spending the morning doing practical things doing the dishes and cleaning house, Munger sat down at her friend's bedside unsure of what to do next. So she began to sing.

Two years ago, Auburndale reunited with the idea of playing a farewell show, but soon talk turned to new material and a new album was underway.  The album celebrates and is dedicated to the citizens of Dayton and the other cities listed on the Forbes magazine 10 Dying Cities List.  The band made a return visit to the WYSO studios to talk the writing and recording process and share some tracks from Alive in a Dying City.

Auburndale will celebrate the release of Alive in a Dying City on Saturday, November 13 at Blind Bob's.

Tim Kao began writing the songs that would become Old Music for Young Hearts while living in Shanghai, China.  When he returned to the U.S., he met up with several established local musicians with whom he finished the album.  T.Kao visited the WYSO studios to perform live versions of songs from Old Music for Young Hearts and to talk about the collaborative recording process for the album.

At 7:30 this evening, Clark County polling places closed and precincts began to count votes. The county experienced good voter turnout today with no problems at the polls.

Absentee voting was down this year compared to the 2008 election. In Clark County over 8,000 people voted by absentee ballot. Board of Elections Director Mark Oster says that absentee voting results don't necessarily indicate who's going to win an election.

David Dotson

Sean Pennington and Georgia Goad first visited the WYSO studios when they were competing in the semi-finals of the Dayton Band Playoffs.  Their debut album was recorded while they were competing in the playoffs, but the duo waited until later this fall to release it so they could finish up the artwork and production.  A Shade of Red returned to Kaleidoscope to talk about the new album and their plans now that it's being released.

A Shade of Red will celebrate the release of Blush on Friday, October 29 at Canal Street Tavern.
