Music And Conversation With The Newbees

Apr 13, 2018

One of Cincinnati's most popular bands is The Newbees, led by Jeff and Misty Perholtz.  The band uses a variety of line-ups, sometimes performing all Beatles music, but now doing more and more original material.

Elaine Diehl welcomes Jeff and Misty to our Corbett Studio for a conversation and some great live music.

The seats are gone -- removed and sold. The large porcelain CINCINNATI GARDENS letters erected for the 1949 opening have been promised to the American Sign Museum in Camp Washington.

And sometime in the not too distant future the Cincinnati Gardens arena – home of Oscar Robertson's NBA Cincinnati Royals, and the minor league Swords, Cyclones, Mohawks and Mighty Ducks – will be a pile of rubble.

Was it a Cincinnati Royals game with Oscar Robertson and Jerry Lucas, or the Ice Capades? I can't remember the first time I went to the Cincinnati Gardens as a kid in the late 1950s or early 1960s.

It might have been for one of the big, showdown Middletown Middies-Hamilton Big Blue basketball games on my birthday in late February.

The Gardens – a special place for 67 years -- will be bought for $1.75-million and demolished by the Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority.
