A World A’Fair is celebrating its 44th year in 2017. The annual event is a celebration of "the different cultures that have made the Dayton area what it is today."  There are 32 countries or ethnicities taking part in the all-weekend event, which has become one of the city's biggest festivals.  

In this WYSO Weekend excerpt, Dayton International Festival Treasurer, Wayne Gulden, talks about the work that Miami Valley residents put into the cultural festival.

 

 

Jerry Kenney was introduced to WYSO by a friend and within a year of first tuning in became an avid listener and supporter. He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition. In addition to now hosting All Things Considered, Jerry is the host and producer of WYSO Weekend, WYSO's weekly news and arts magazine. He has also produced several radio dramas for WYSO in collaboration with local theater companies. Jerry has won several Ohio AP awards as well as an award from PRINDI for his work with the WYSO news department. Jerry says that the best part of his job is being able to talk to people in the community and share their experiences with WYSO listeners.
