The WYSO Archives

Between the end of World War II and the mid-1960s, about three and a half million people migrated from Appalachia to the urban manufacturing centers of the Midwest. Over 40,000 came to the Dayton area from West Virginia, Tennessee, and especially Eastern Kentucky, seeking work at companies like National Cash Register, Frigidaire, and General Motors. They brought their culture and their music along with them. Archives Fellow Jocelyn Robinson brings us the rich mountain heritage in the WYSO audio collection, preserved through the efforts of three local brothers.

After a busy summer of live performances, Jonny Dreads and the Mystiks return to the WYSO studios.  The band performed a live set on Kaleidoscope and talked with host Juliet Fromholt about their latest lineup, writing and recording and their plans for 2015.
