When you enter the small lobby of the Country Kitchen on Interstate 71 in Lebanon, Ohio, the first thing you're likely to notice is a set of side-by-side bulletin boards nearly covered with business cards, flyers and brochures.

 

In the age of online advertising, it looks like more than a few people still choose this old-school method of promoting the items and services they have to offer.

"Psycho: Behind the Scenes of the Classic Thriller" by Janet Leigh (original recording made in 1995)

1995 was my Hollywood year on the program. Over a thirty day period I had interviews with two of the greatest movie stars of their era, Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh. Janet Leigh was coming to Dayton for the Janet Leigh Film Festival and she was publicizing a book about her experiences making a film in which she only made a brief but career defining appearance; Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho."

Brooks Daugherty joined WYSO music director Niki Dakota in the studio for an acoustic preview of his new album live on Excursions.  

Brooks Daugherty will celebrate the release of his new CD on March 9 at Hannah's in downtown Dayton. 

Robert Crais returned to the program to talk about his latest installment in a mystery series that features Elvis Cole, a private investigator who Crais likes to call "The World's Greatest Detective." In "The Wanted" Elvis is contacted by a woman who is worried about her son. The youth is still in high school, he doesn't have a job, and lately he's been sporting some very flashy and expensive apparel. She got suspicious and searched his room. That is when she became really upset and very concerned. How did her son obtain a Rolex watch that would retail for forty thousand dollars?
