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.

Human Reunion's new album has been a 3 year work-in-progress, but the end result, an album called Arc de Square was well worth the wait.  The band visited the WYSO studios for a live performance and discussed translating their raw live energy into a recording, especially when they usually weren't in the same room during the recording process.

Human Reunion will perform Saurday night at Blind Bob's. 

Kyle Melton, Jay Madewell and Shaine Sullivan at South Park Tavern wanted something more from the typical Open Mic night. They were looking for an all-inclusive event breaking the mold of the traditional one man with a guitar on stage. Essentially, they were looking to create the ultimate live jam session. Thus, the Rock n' Roll Play Date was devised. In this interview, Juliet Fromholt talks to Melton, Madewell, and Sullivan about the origins of the unusual Rock n' Roll Play Date.
