Apr 4, 2014

In this edition of WYSO Weekend:

  • State News
  • Jim Bucher is well-known to most Miami Valley residents.  He spent thirty years as a photographer, reporter and TV personality on WDTN Channel 2.  But, changes in the media landscape brought changes to Jim’s professional and personal life.  
  • In the summer of 1973, César Chávez came to Dayton from the strike lines in Coachella, California to talk about the plight of farm workers. There was a week of activities and WYSO News was right in the middle of it.  Rediscovered Radio’s Jocelyn Robinson takes a look at the struggles facing the migrant worker community, then and now.
  • Shakin Dave Hussong’s Hall of Fame Blues Show has been a part of WYSO’s programming line up for over 30 years, and now on the last Monday of every month, Dave brings you live music from the YSO studios. He’s already featured Eric Jerardi and Dixie Peach, and this past Monday his esteemed guests in studio were noneother than The Noah Wotherspoon band. Noah, Rob Thaxton and Josh Gonzalez brought the blues to the WYSO studios for the latest edition of Shake's Hall Pass.  The trio performed a variety of blues tunes, even getting Shakin' Dave himself to sit in on the final song. Here’s some of what audiences heard.
