No More Mad Frog Mondays

tropicoso.jpg

After more than 15 years of providing the music for salsa dancing on Mad Frog Mondays, Cincinnati band Tropicoso is ending this energetic tradition at the end of January. While a new, monthly event will start up in March, Band leader Nicholas Radina is in the studio with Brian O’Donnell to discuss the reasons behind this decision, and what dancers can look forward to starting March 8.

Brian O’Donnell has been sharing his love of music on the radio since the early 1970’s. He is a true public radio renaissance man hosting classical music on 90.9 WGUC weekday mornings; contributing music and arts features for 91.7 WVXU’s Around Cincinnati program; and hosting Saturday Morning with Brian O’D on WNKU. Musicians, artists and community arts leaders regularly stop by to record interviews with Brian— from Jaime Laredo with the Linton Music Series, or J.R. Cassidy from the Northern Kentucky Symphony, to a curator of an exhibit at The Cincinnati Art Museum, or a soloist in town to perform with the CSO, his relaxed style puts everyone at ease and lets their story come through.
