Full disclosure here: If I still worked at the Enquirer, I’d be writing about Lee Hay and her latest effort to celebrate Cincinnati’s rich broadcasting and recording history.

Up next for Hay: Another five-week series about Cincinnati’s iconic King Records, to celebrate King Records month.

On “The Blues with Lee Hay” at 11 p.m. Saturday on WVXU-FM and WMUB-FM, she interviews music historian Brian Powers and Steve Halper, nephew of King Records founder Syd Nathan, about the history of the record label and the many musicians who recorded there.

Powers also talks about the many activities scheduled to honor King Records during the September celebration around the city. (See list here.)
