Comedian and songwriter Heywood Banks made a stop in Yellow Springs on his way to a two day engagement at Wiley's Comedy Club in downtown Dayton.  Banks joined Norm Whitman and Cindy Funk in the WYSO studios during Detours for an afternoon of songs, stories and lots of laughs.

Cindy Funk has been a lover of folk music of all kinds for so long, she can barely remember when she got hooked. But it's a good bet that it was WYSO that is responsible! In the 1980's, Cindy hosted a Celtic music show on WYSO called "Shamrocks, Heather and Roses" until 1987. In the meantime, she was busy performing in the folk group Sweetwater, that played all around the Midwest. Then, in 2005, Cindy reappeared on WYSO's airwaves with her new show - "The Dear Green Place" - like the earlier show, filled with the traditional and contemporary Celtic music that she loves so much.
