New Beginnings

Oct 15, 2015

On this episode of Local Exposure, we discuss New Beginnings.

Introduction: A re-evaluation of the 'P-Word'

Part 1: Meet Belinda Cai, the newest contributor to Local Exposure

Part 2: Get a preview of the Cincinnati Cyclones 2015-2016 season  from Kristin Ropp, VP and GM for the Cyclones and US Bank Arena.

Part 3: Belinda speaks with Rachelle Caplan, the head organizer of LadyFest Cincinnati and talks about the schedule of events. Belinda also wrote an article about LadyFest for this week's CityBeat.

This week on  Swing with Bill Cartwright Harry James, Nat King Cole Trio, Eileen Farrell, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble and more.

International Guitar Duo Loren & Mark from Syracuse, New York recently visited our studio to talk with Jim Nolan about how they met, their musical style and sensibilities, and to perform a couple of songs.

  Highlights from this week's episode of Swing with Bill Cartwright include Tony Bennett and K.D. Lang teaming up to perform "Dream a Little Dream of Me" plus "Love for Sale" done by the Blue Wisp Big Band.

  Where can you hear great music from Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman, Nina Simone as well as Shorty Rogers, Lavay Smith, Buddy Greco and Ted Heath? It must be this week's episode of Swing with Bill Cartwright.

He began as a visual artist before becoming a music star as lead singer and songwriter for the seminal new wave band Devo. Akron, Ohio native Mark Mothersbaugh’s day job now is writing music for TV and movies, but he has never stopped creating art.

As is so often the case with many bands, the roots of Jack Burton Overdrive can be found in the long-lasting friendship between founding members Jack Rininger and Nick Barrows [JetLab]. Jack and Nick have been writing and playing music together for decades and, in 2006, decided to embark on an exploration of popular music played on the concertina and the ukulele. These experiments resulted in a loveably quirky and endearing bohemian-style of front-porch music making.

Two Cincinnati gems will join forces tonight at the Woodward Theater for a delicious alchemy of classical and Americana-indie music.

Cincinnati’s Phratry Records has just completed work on a split 12” from local bands Knife the Symphony and Smoke Signals… and everything about this package deserves attention.
