King Records Month

The King Records month long celebration in September is coming to a close, and tonight's one of the few remaining events this week.

Stan Hertzman, who's been a guest on Around Cincinnati in the past, will talk about King Records and the group Them.  Great stories from Cincinnati's historical past.

Stan will be at the Public Library's downtown branch tonight at 7pm.

Celebrating King Records Month: Hank Ballard & The Midnighters

In honor of Cincinnnati's celebration of King Records in September, I produced a special about Hank Ballard & the Midnighters which will air on Saturday, September 9th at 11pm and again Sunday, September 10th at 7pm.  Music historian Brian Powers spoke by telephone recently with the two remaining Midnighters, Billy Davis and Norman Thrasher.  They've both been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as the Midnighters.

On WVXU-FM's "Around Cincinnati" at 7 p.m. Sunday, I'll be interviewing steel guitarist Cameron Cochran about playing country music all around town during King Records Month in September.
