This Saturday, April 21st is Record Store Day around the world, and in the Miami Valley there are many Record Store Day activities that go beyond shopping. At the helm of the celebrations is Ghettoblaster Magazine, run in part locally. Ghettoblaster managing editor and co-publisher, David Obenour joins Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt in the studio to talk about the magazine and its role in this year's festivities, which include a special showing of Empire Records at the Neon Movies.
What started off as a short video for his church turned into a feature length documentary project for Shane Pergrem. Here Pergrem discusses the process of making The Almond Tree, his first feature film and where the process has taken him as an artist. He's joined by longtime friend Ricky Terrell of Starving in the Belly of the Whale, who composed the soundtrack to the Almond Tree. Terrell talks about scoring the film and shares several live and recorded songs.
In the second part of the evening's interview, local yoga teacher Tori Reynolds joins Ben Rivet to discuss Go w/The Flow, a yoga experience featuring live music. Rivet and Reynolds will be embarking on a tour for Go w/The Flow and blogging about their experience here.
Next Saturday, February 25th, the Springfield Symphony Orchestra will present Out of This World, a multi-media concert featuring Gustav Holst's The Planets set to NASA space images compiled by Wittenberg Astronomy professor Dr. Daniel Fleisch.
WYSO's Juliet Fromholt spoke with Dr. Fleisch about his role in the show. In this extended interview, she begins by asking him how he got involved in the project.
