September brings to Cincinnati the 70th Anniversary celebration of the historic King Records. Brian Powers from the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County talks with Lee Hay about the events being scheduled during the month, both at the library and other locations around the area. (Lee Hay will rebroadcast her acclaimed 4-part King Records special each Saturday night in September on her Blues show at 11pm).

Cincinnati has always been fertile ground for amazing choral music, starting with the May Festival, Vocal Arts Ensemble and, now, a unique chorus that offers young professionals in our area not only a chance to sing, but to be involved in our community and meet new people. KellyAnn Nelson, the founder and director of the Young Professionals’ Choral Collective (yp/CC) is in the studio with Mark Perzel to talk about how the group started, what its mission is, and their upcoming Black & Blues Gala on February 16.
