We have had some famous astronauts on the program. John Glenn made an appearance that became the longest interview in the history of the Book Nook. It ran over an hour. I rolled over NPR's news headlines at the top of the hour because I was still talking to John on the telephone and it was a live interview!
 

Aimee Noelle reads her poem, "Inverted Water."

Dayton-based band Salvadore Ross visited the WYSO studios ahead of the release of their debut album Mystery Head.  The band performed live on Kaleidoscope and talked to host Juliet Fromholt about the process of writing and recording the album, plans for 2017 and more.

Salvadore Ross will celebrate the release of Mystery Head on Saturday, February 4th at the Oregon Express.

Chad Wells made his start in the Dayton tattoo community downtown and now things are coming full circle as Wells & Co. Custom Tattoo prepares for the grand opening of its downtown Dayton shop on Third Street, which will also feature a monthly rotating art gallery.  Chad and Michelle Wells visited the WYSO studios to talk about the opening along with Jennifer Taylor, who curated the first art exhibition, and Gary Mitchell and Chris Corn, two of the artists.

Nobody had ever done this before. Julie Zickefoose spent years drawing pictures of baby birds from life. She studied these tiny creatures as they developed in the nest. Each day she would create new portraits of these delicate nestlings. Her paintings of birds are magnificently rendered.
 

Julie Moore reads Lianne Spidel's poem, "Unsung."

Many years ago I was spending a quiet Saturday afternoon inside a music listening room at my high school. There were shelves jammed with old record albums in there along with a turntable and a set of headphones. For a young music buff who was just discovering jazz that was my version of heaven.
