Beginning as a two-piece and growing to four members, The Nuckles combine punk, garage and rock and roll.  The band visited the WYSO studios for a live set on Kaleidoscope and talked with host Juliet Fromholt about writing, recording and upcoming shows.

Neon Movies

The Dayton LGBT Film Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and to find out about this year’s selections, we spoke once again with Jonathan McNeil, manager at the Neon Movies in downtown Dayton.

Lori Gravley reads Lianne Spidel's poem, "October Waves."

Over the years I have interviewed a number of romance writers. Nora Roberts has been on the show (I loved her!) and we even had the late Janet Dailey on the program (you might recall that she had famously been caught plagiarizing Nora Roberts).
