General Manager Neenah Ellis previews the WYSO Are You Listening? event with an excerpt from Dave Isay's Ghetto Life 101. On Saturday, July 17, as part of the Yellow Springs Experience, WYSO will be showcasing some of the finest radio documentary features and will discuss how they were made. As Ellis eloquently states, "Radio is a personal medium. I talk to you and because of that it is made for storytelling."
In an excerpt from Conrad's Corner, Julie Moore visits for the second time to talk about her newly released book of poetry, Slipping Out of Bloom. She reads a poem from all three sections touching on aspects of beauty, death and wonder.
Finally, Music Director Niki Dakota wraps up the show with a "belated find" for WYSO's CD of the Month – Some Strange Country by the band Crooked Still. Though it took some time for her to find, the wait was clearly worth it as she describes she describes the alternative blue-grass album as "one of the finest acoustic albums I've heard in a long time."
