Pop Wagner Live on Excursions

Pop Wagner
Mel Floyd

Like his brother Bodie, Pop Wagner's musical roots were influenced by his time in Yellow Springs.  He continues to collaborate with many noted players in the folk and traditional music community, traveling across the United States and the world performing.  Pop Wagner visited the new WYSO studios to perform live and chat with Music Director Niki Dakota about his local musical roots, the early days of Prairie Home Companion and his work to celebrate the legacy of Woodie Guthrie.

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.
