WYSO has been a home to local musicians and live music for most of its fifty plus years. In 1971 Tom Duffee came to the radio station with his brothers Dan and Jim and started a program that's still part of our line-up called Rise When the Rooster Crows.
A few years later, The Corndrinkers was born – with Tom on banjo and vocals, Linda Scott and Barb Kuhn on fiddles, Doug Smith on guitar and Al Turbull on bass. Their music keeps an American tradition alive.
Dayton-area blues prodigy Reece Lincoln stops by Excursions for a special Veterans Day acoustic performance.
Lincoln, who began playing guitar at 8 years old, has developed into a must-see local live attraction. His band, the Reece Lincoln Band, is well known for its fiery gospel- and blues-soaked stage performances, and has been featured everywhere from Dayton stages to the CBS Early Show.
Dave Doughman and Don Thrasher of Swearing at Motorists have a long history with WYSO. For their first visit to Kaleidoscope, Doughman performs acoustic renditions of their songs and the duo discuss their upcoming show at Canal Street Tavern.
