WYSO Weekend: May 08, 2016

WYSO Weekend

In this edition of WYSO Weekend: Wine, women, and song… as WYSO Music Director Niki Dakota talks funk with our very own Radio Basim and their special guest on Excursions this week.  And Dayton History is getting ready to launch their own wine production. You'll hear about that, we’ve got Dayton Youth Radio and WYSO’s art series Culture Couch. See details below.

  • Women’s Voices from Dayton Correctional Institution.

  • Today on Dayton Youth Radio we have a feature from David H Ponitz Career Technology Center. It's from a student who was raised by his grandparents and is now ready to graduate.

  • The kind of storytelling once only found in movie theatres is everywhere now —streamable at Amazon and Netflix, available at iTunes, and on television, too.
Community Voices producer Dave Barber wondered how all this content is affecting the two art house cinemas in the region:The Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs and the Neon Movies in Dayton.

  • The new Northwest Branch of the Dayton Metro Library and a new exhibit there was the buzz on Friday during Excursions with Niki Dakota.  Check it out.

  • Dayton History’s annual wine and food celebration Fluere de Fette turns 25 this year. It takes place next week under Sycamore trees behind the Carillon Brewing Company, which will soon launch the production of its own wine selections. To find out about that and Dayton’s history of alcohol production, we spoke with Tonya Brock, director and brewster at the Carillon Brewing Company.
