WYSO Weekend: April 26, 2020

Jerry Kenney

If you’re looking for something fun to do while staying at home, Miami Valley museums may have you covered. They’ve been beefing up their virtual products to keep patrons, both new and old, well cultured while quarantined. Community Voices producer Jason Reynolds has been on a lot of online tours lately. 

This week on Dayton Youth Radio we have a new series from Kettering Fairmont High School. Students there were eager to talk about life under quarantine - and so their teacher, Laura Hutchens, called us up and our collaboration began. Today we'll hear from Imani Reed and Molly Mitchell both juniors at Kettering Fairmont High School.

People are discovering some new ways to stay connected during the coronavirus pandemic.  In Yellow Springs, a talented young man is using his gift to bring his neighbors together. For WYSO’s Alone Together project, here’s Jocelyn Robinson.

In wartime, there are celebrity generals like Norman Schwarzkopf, infamous adversaries like Saddam Hussein, and the men and women who carry out their orders, and at times, they cross paths. Today on Veterans Voices, Air Force Veteran Tracy Cooper of Huber Heights shares his story.

WYSO’s Leila Goldstein speaks with Dr. Lee Hannah, a professor of political science at Wright State University, about the impact of the coronavirus on this election and some of the issues on the ballot in Greene County.

Jerry Kenney was introduced to WYSO by a friend and within a year of first tuning in became an avid listener and supporter. He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition. In addition to now hosting All Things Considered, Jerry is the host and producer of WYSO Weekend, WYSO's weekly news and arts magazine. He has also produced several radio dramas for WYSO in collaboration with local theater companies. Jerry has won several Ohio AP awards as well as an award from PRINDI for his work with the WYSO news department. Jerry says that the best part of his job is being able to talk to people in the community and share their experiences with WYSO listeners.
