Terminal Cafe began performing in Dayton in the 1980s and competed in the first ever Dayton Band Playoffs at the newly opened Canal Street Tavern. After many years apart, the band has reunited and started rehearsing for an upcoming reunion show along with several current local bands containing the members' children. Terminal Cafe visited the WYSO studios for their first live performance in over a decade. They spoke with Shelly Hulce about the Dayton music scene in the 1980s, the decision to reunite and preparations for their reunion concert.
In 2003, Jennifer Knapp left her career as a successful Christian artist and didn't perform for 7 years. Now Knapp has rekindled her music career identifying herself as a gay person of faith. She has released a folk album called "Letting Go," and she'll perform in Dayton next weekend. WYSO's Juliet Fromholt spoke with Knapp about her return to music.
