In this edition of WYSO Weekend:

  • The arts organization – Cityfolk will cease to exist by the end of the year, but an agreement between the University of Dayton and Cityfolk will allow the their Jazz programming continue. Today on WW, we’ll hear from Matt Dunn – President of Cityfolk, and Paul Benson – Dean of UD’s College of Arts and Sciences.
  • Politics Ohio with WYSO News Director, Emily McCord
  • There is one segment of the population that has a unique problem over the Christmas holiday. Parents who are incarcerated often times have no way of providing gifts for their children. But as WYSO's Wayne Baker reports, the Salvation Army in Springfield has found a way to make sure inmates can still give presents to their kids.
  • WYSO Curious is a new occasional series that lets our listeners ask questions for WYSO reporters to answer. For our first story, Dave Chesar of Oakwood heard a story we did about the 6,000 abandoned properties in Dayton. So he wondered: how do you actually do that? Who do you call? Is there a list? To answer all those questions – we sent reporter Lewis Wallace out to meet Dave.

  • P.S. Are you curious about the Miami Valley, its history, people or economy? Is there a place, a person or a story that mystifies or intrigues you? Do you like to ask questions? help us select the next story for WYSO Curious by visiting our website – WYSO.org
