David Lewis has a commentary on the life and times of Cincinnati musician “Ragtime” Bob Roberts. Bob Roberts was born in Cincinnati on April 27, 1871. He became a pioneer in most of the things he tried: ragtime composer, recording artist, stand-up comedian and early radio comic. Later in his career, he worked for WCKY. He died of a heart attack in his home at 3671 Vine Street on January 21, 1930 and was buried in the family plot at Spring Grove Cemetery.
A new art gallery has opened in Price Hill, part of the burgeoning arts community in one of Cincinnati’s oldest neighborhoods. To talk about Gallery@3506 and other cultural developments in Price Hill, Jane Durrell is joined by Pamela Taylor, community outreach coordinator for Price Hill Will.
