The Broken Lights and The Real OH Ghostbusters Network on Excursions

This Wednesday, Excursions hosted another of the ten bands that will be performing at the fourth annual 80's Rewind which is taking place this Saturday at Canal Street Tavern in Dayton. The Broken Lights is Tyler Cochran on guitar and vocals, Andy Uzzel on bass and Zach Grove on the drums. While in the studio they  performed three songs, a cover of "Should I stay or should I go?" by the Clash and two original songs off their self-titled album, "Hey, Hey, Baby, Baby" and "Backtrack." 

Also in the studio were two members of the Real OH Ghostbusters Network, Brad Hauck and Molly Thomson. Hauck started the Ghostbusters Network seven or eight years ago and today the group complete with gear, costumes and even a replica of the car from the movie, raise money for charities like the American Cancer Society and The Ronald McDonald House. 

The Real OH Ghostbusters Network is teaming up with the Columbus Ghostbusters to host the event this Saturday. The event will feature ten all original bands, including The Broken Lights, that will be performing 1980's classics as well as original songs.

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.
