Ludlow Garage 40th Anniversary

Oct 15, 2015

In 1969, there were two streets in Cincinnati which were a hotbed for young activists, music lovers, and hippies… Calhoun Street and Ludlow Avenue.  On this one-hour special, you’ll hear about a legendary music club on Ludlow Avenue from some of the folks who worked there and knew the scene.

Michael Hodesh who owned a shop on Calhoun Street begins the special with some of his memories.  You’ll also hear a roundtable discussion with Jim Tarbell, Margie Hays, Jeff Seireveld, and Bill Cunningham who worked at the Ludlow Garage.  Bob Nave shares his memories of playing at the Ludlow Garage with the Lemon Pipers, and Carmon DeLeone remembers playing with the Sound Museum.  Dale Rabiner also talks about attending many concerts there.

Carousel of Love is the new CD from local singer/songwriter Serenity Fisher and her band, The Cardboard Hearts, and she, along with two of her band members, Michael G. Ronstadt and Matt Halvorson, join Lee Hay to talk about the music, the band, and the CD release party happening on October 16 at Molly Malone’s in Covington.

Two Cincinnati gems will join forces tonight at the Woodward Theater for a delicious alchemy of classical and Americana-indie music.

Cincinnati’s Phratry Records has just completed work on a split 12” from local bands Knife the Symphony and Smoke Signals… and everything about this package deserves attention.

Meet Bobby Sharp, The Very Busy Local Jazz Drummer

Aug 14, 2015

He’s one of the busiest jazz drummers in the area, currently keeping the beat for three different groups – he’s Bobby Sharp and the Cincinnati native is talking with our Stuart Holman.

The local musical duo known as Ellery, after a lengthy sabbatical, are back with a book of poetry called Once You Had Hands with photography by Michael Wilson. Justin & Tasha Golden join Barbara Gray to talk about the book and their May 1 event at Hoffner Lodge in Northside that will be part book launch and part Ellery concert.

Jim Nolan talks with Misty Perholtz and Tim Seiwart from the band The Newbees about the April 17 fundraising concert, We All Shrine On, at the Southgate House Revival in Newport. The event will feature many local bands and musicians performing Beatles music and will benefit the Cincinnati Shriner’s Hospital for Children.

  Cincinnati has always been a music town. You can enjoy almost any style of music any night of the week, and attend dozens of large-scale music events through the year. But as any independent musician can tell you, as much as they love what they do, it'’s not an easy way to make a living and there is no safety net.

Acclaimed local musician Chris Arduser is in the studio with Brian O’Donnell to talk about his new, and uniquely titled, CD – Flibbertigibbet.

Mike Breen, the music editor for CityBeat, recently visited our studio to talk with Jim Nolan about the nominees for the 18th Annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. The awards will be presented on Sunday, January 25 in a ceremony/concert/party at Covington’s Madison Theater.

Longtime local musician, former record store owner, and now life coach at the Conscious Living Center, Ron Esposito talks with Lee Hay about the music he creates now with Tibetan brass bowls and crystal singing bowls, and his new CD, Soul Sonics.

Sometimes this gig is just freaking awesome.

Back in January of this year, I was turned on to a local act that quickly became one of my favorites - Day Camp. Their throwback 1990's sound takes what's best about Pixies, Lemonheads and TMBG and mixes it with their own sardonic and cynical lyricism as well as tremendously groovy rhythms.
