Kidtee Hello

Human Reunion's new album has been a 3 year work-in-progress, but the end result, an album called Arc de Square was well worth the wait.  The band visited the WYSO studios for a live performance and discussed translating their raw live energy into a recording, especially when they usually weren't in the same room during the recording process.

Human Reunion will perform Saurday night at Blind Bob's.

Conrad Balliet reads Jim Brooks' poem, "Meaning."

Al Holbrook's sound will catch a room by surprise, filling it with feeling and emotion solely by his fingers gracing the keys accompanied by a soulful voice. "I have great admiration for anyone who will just be by themselves and perform," host Niki Dakota explains as she introduces her musical guest to the studio.

Holbrook is a Dayton-native and can be spotted all over the Miami Valley performing at venues like the Trolley Stop and Canal Street Tavern. This Friday, August 6th, you can experience him yourself at J-Alans in Downtown.
