Niki Dakota interviews Mike Haslet of the Day-Tones barbershop quartet and listens to a few choice pieces to publicize the up-coming  barbershop quartet festival on the 12th, this year themed 'Celebrate Dayton'. 

Interview with the Day-Tones

Haslet informed Niki during the interview that this year will not only be the 28th gathering of the Miami Valley Music Men, to which the Day-Tones belong, but also the 75th anniversary of the creation of the barbershop harmony society, originating in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The quartet sang three classic tunes including "Zippidy Doo-Da" and Ray Charles' "What a Wonderful World".

The performance will take place at the Randy Chisel auditorium in the Old Dayton High School on Smithville road in Dayton, Ohio.
