On March 9, Brook Daughtery will celebrate the release of his new album, The Dakota Hill, in Dayton.  He'll be joined onstage at Hannah's by Roanoke and the Tony Red Band.  Tony Herdman visited the WYSO studios to preview the show with an acoustic set live on Kaleidoscope.

The titles were another thing to consider. If I liked the cover and/or the title I would frequently purchase those LPs even if I had never heard of the recording artists. This willingness to encounter the unknown sounds hidden within those album jackets often paid off splendidly. I happened upon some amazing recordings by doing so.

In this third volume in the author's "Orphan X" series Evan Smoak is living an undercover existence.
