Coming up in this edition WYSO Weekend:

  • As concerns spread about a worldwide Ebola crisis, Public Health Dayton and Montgomery County has setup a hotline to answer questions about the disease. For details I spoke with the Agency’s Bill Wharton.
  • The Dayton LGBT Film Festival continues today at the Neon Movies is downtown Dayton. It is the ninth year for the premiere LGBT event. Last week I spoke with Neon Manager, Jonathan McNeil. Here’s his rundown of today’s movies.
  • In other film news - Recently FilmDayton announced their new Executive Director—Shelly Hulce! On my visit to her new digs in the Dayton Convention Center we spoke about how she’s settling into the new job and what’s ahead for the organization.
  • Bellbrook United Methodist Churh will hold an interesting public forum next week - Bully Pulpit.  Pastor Daryl Fairchild talks about the event moderated by Dayton Daily News Managing Editor, Ron Rollins, and featuring the great-grandsons of two American Presidents.
  • WYSO’s Lewis Wallace with Under Construction.
  • In today's aviation commentary, Paul Glenshaw has an unlikely story. See if you can imagine this: a congressman risks his life for a self-funded world peace mission. The Smithsonian loans an airplane from its collection for a solo round- the- world flight. A pilot makes that flight and does nothing to exploit his achievement. As Glenshaw tells us, all these things happened, in 1951, to one Peter Mack.
