WYSO Weekend: November 17, 2013

Nov 18, 2013

In this edition of WYSO Weekend:

  • WYSO had two national stories appear on NPR last week.  On Monday – a feature on the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders Final Toast, and Wednesday, again on Morning Edition, WYSO's Lewis Wallace reported on the effects of Banking Deserts. 
  • An ongoing dispute between the founder of Springfield's Rocking Horse Community Health Center and its board of directors has reached a conclusion. An official statement from the board states that Dr. James Duffee is no longer employed there. WYSO's Wayne Baker reports on the situation.
  • In this week’s Politics Ohio, WYSO News Director, Emily McCord, spoke with Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingalls about a projected 400 million dollar savings project because of Medicaid expansion in the state. Not everyone agrees with what to do with the money.

  • On November 27th, nearly thirty local musicians will gather and celebrate the music of the Band and the historic performances of The Last Waltz live on the stage at the Dayton Art Institute’s NCR Auditorium in Dayton. Proceeds from Such A Night! A Celebration of The Band’s Last Waltz will benefit WYSO, and to tell us more about it, WYSO Music Director Niki Dakota.
  • We also have Niki's interview with The Claudettes on a recent stop to the WYSO studios.
