The Wright State University Motion Pictures program will host their annual Doc Night event this weekend on campus. Every year, junior Motion Pictures students create a new documentary film as their junior thesis project, and in promotion of their new works, students Adam Clark and Jacob Louis Miller stopped by WYSO's Excursions to speak with Niki Dakota about their new films and the Motion Pictures program.

Wright State University's Doc Night, hosted by the Motion Pictures program, will be at the WSU Creative Arts Center, Room 280, this Friday night at 6:30 PM. More information can be found at Facebook.com.

Evan Miller is a percussionist, lover of sound, and is probably buying too many cassette tapes online right now. Evan got his start in radio in 2012 at WWSU at Wright State University, where he was studying percussion performance. He followed through with both endeavors and eventually landed a lucrative dual career playing experimental music at home and abroad and volunteering at WYSO. Maintaining a connection to normal music, Evan also plays drums in bands, and fills in for Niki Dakota on Excursions. When not doing something music-related, Evan is most likely listening to podcasts or watching food videos at home with his cat.
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.
