Bruce Campbell has had a long acting career. He recently published his second memoir. If you don't recognize his name you'll probably recognize his face. You'll say, oh yeah, that guy! Here's a link to his Wikipedia page that provides an accounting of some of the projects he has undertaken.

The image of a circle held so much meaning in Jamie Murrell's new project, it became the band's name.  With members that have performed together on and off throughout their musical careers, Circle perform original songs as well as their own twist on the standards.  The band visited the WYSO studios for a live set on Kaleidoscope.

Circle will perform at the Spirited Goat Coffeehouse in Yellow Springs on September 8.

Fair at New Boston

 

The annual Fair at New Boston is celebrating 35 years in existence. The historical 'look back in time' event keeps growing according to organizers who say the fair became an annual event soon after successful bicentennial celebrations took place in the area.

Pam Cottrel, marketing director for the George Rogers Clark Heritage Association and the Fair at New Boston, says roughly 600 costumed history lovers, vendors and artisans will help create an authentic recreation of pioneer life 200 years ago.

Kathi Reed returned to the program to discuss her latest novel "Trouble for Rent." This book is a prequel to Reed's debut effort "Banking on Trouble." In this one Annie Fillmore is running her mom and pop video rental store in a small town in Ohio. The year is 1990 and the video rental business was at the height of what was to be a brief but highly lucrative run.

Infused with a love for Bluegrass and other Americana genres, The Goldsberrys made their WYSO debut with a live set on Kaleidoscope.  The band talked with host Juliet Fromholt about songwriting, releasing their debut album 'Hunker Me Down' and more.

 The Goldsberrys' debut album, 'Hunker Me Down' is available now.

C.J. Box concludes his "Highway Quartet" with "Paradise Valley." A serial killer known as "The Lizard King" has been preying on truck stop prostitutes for years and he is finally slowing down. As this diabolical psychopath heads back to the wild western lands where he grew up he is leaving a trail of carnage behind him. And, in a weirdly twisted manner he is trying to recreate a family unit consisting of hostages he has harvested from among the innocents who have had the misfortune to meet him.
