This year's blues Christmas special is dedicated to the memory of WVXU Production Assistant Kevin Rowinski who started his radio broadcast career while a student at Xavier University. Cincinnati Public Radio brought him on board in 2005 where he enjoyed his work on a number of award-winning specials over the years. Sadly, he passed away in the spring of 2016, but his work is still highly valued by those who worked with him. So, this blues special is one which he helped me produce in 2014.
This picture of him was taken at a Cincinnati Reds ballgame even though his first love was the Cleveland Indians. He loved sports and has left lasting memories with those of us who were lucky enough to share time with him.
