Remembering Tom Scheidt

Local musician Tom Scheidt passed away earlier this week.  Scheidt was a long-time member of the Miami Valley music scene, playing in a number of bands including Chazz and Orion—and was a founding member of Fannigan’s Isle in 1984.

Here Niki Dakota talks with Rick Fannin, Scheidt's longtime musical partner in Fannigan's Isle.  Dakota and Fannin discuss Scheidt's legacy as a musician, teacher and storyteller in the Miami Valley.

In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990. In 2002, Niki’s radio career brought her to WYSO where she continues to enjoy a love of music and shares that love with the Miami Valley weekdays on Excursions.
