Kaleidoscope

Wednesday, 8 - 11pm

Every Wednesday night Juliet Fromholt talks to musicians, filmmakers, and artists from the Miami Valley and beyond and more often than not, you're treated to a set of music performed live in the WYSO studios.  You'll also hear some of the best music from emerging artists and old favorites from around the world. 

Ways To Connect

David Busarow (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar), Jack Badgley (Guitars), John Winch(Bass, Piano) and Sam Pickard (Drums) visited the WYSO studios last fall shortly after winning the Dayton Band Playoffs under the name the Outliers.  Nearly a year later, they've changed their name to The Giant Steps and recently completed an album called Transitions.  The Giant Steps returned to the WYSO studios to perform on Kaleidoscope and chat about what's next for the young band.

Mark Rose, Lucas Carpenter and Jon Walker did a traditional singer-songwriter tour last year, but this time decided to try something a little different.  Adopting more of songwriter's circle model in which all 3 performers are onstage and rotate performing each other's songs, the trio is once again on the road.  They'll be appearing at Ghostlight Coffee in Dayton's Historic South Park neighborhood on Saturday, July 14 at 8pm.

Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt spoke with Mark Rose and Lucas Carpenter while they were on the road from Eerie, PA to Rochester, NY. 

The members of SOL have been playing together since roughly 2006 and say that making music together comes naturally.  The group combines funk, reggae, world and rock into a sound that's ever-evolving to reflect the different musical backgrounds of the members.  SOL visited the WYSO studios for live set on Kaleidoscope and talked to Juliet Fromholt about their years of playing together.

SOl will be performing as part of Miami Valley Music Fest on August 10th and 11th at the Troy Eagles Campground.

James Rutledge

Ashley Stacy, Josh Davis, QuiQue Bucio and John Mangold have been performing together as Gathering Mercury for nearly a year, and they have a lot to show for it.  After participating in the Dayton Band Playoffs and the Dayton Does Dayton tribute show, both at Canal Street Tavern, the young group has been making a name for itself performing at numerous local venues.  Now Gathering Mercury prepares to release their debut album, Where the Others Go.

The members of Magic Jackson have been hard at work in the studio on a new album that's set to be the label debut for IBC Records.  The yet-to-be named album features a honing of the group's blend of rock and Dayton funk with lots of collaborations and guest appearances from other local and regional musicians.
