Crossing the border from Tennessee to Kentucky, Davis Rogan calls in to Excursions to update Niki Dakota ahead of his performance at Canal Street Tavern.  Rogan was in the Dayton area earlier this summer as a solo performer of song and story.  This time, he's back with his band to play New Orleans-style rhythm and blues with their own spin.

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.
