Sam Bodary Says Goodbye to Excursions (That's Me!)

Juliet Fromholt

I am Sam Bodary. I have been the summer intern for Niki Dakota on Excursions for the past three or so months. One of my responsibilities is to post here when we have live guests on the show, be it an interview, performance, or a little of both. Welp, I have run into a small predicament.

I was the live guest. This may read a bit awkwardly.

I, Sam Bodary, walked over from my normal everyday spot in the studio over to the guest mic today to join Niki Dakota on Excursions. We talked about my time at the studio and my plans for the future. There are even a few surprise musical tidbits, one from my EP, Onward to the Flame, and another from a WYSO jingle collaboration with fellow intern Rory Papania.

You can download any and all of my music at sambodary.bandcamp.com for free, or more if you're feeling generous. 

Thank you to everyone at WYSO for making me feel so at home. Getting up to come here in the morning was the best way to spend my summer by far. I'll absolutely keep in touch. Long live WYSO!

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. 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.
