And later in the program, Juliet Fromholt talks to the band Curse of Cassandra – you’ll hear about their next album release and some of the music they featured Wednesday night on Kaleidoscope. More details below.

  • Women’s Voices from Dayton Correctional Institution.
  • Mollie Hauser is the hospitality manager and historian for the Dayton Women’s Club. The hundred year-old building has a rich history and today on WW, Mollie’s going to tell us a little bit about that, and how the house is functioning today.
