On July 4th, 2020 at 11pm, you'll hear a special re-broadcast of a special I produced in 2019 featuring a conversation between Ron Esposito and Doug Yeager during his visit to Cincinnati in November, 2018. 

Ron Esposito welcomed Doug Yeager into WVXU’s studio to talk about Josh White’s career.  Yeager represents the estate of Josh White and is also Josh White, Jr.’s manager. This one-hour special originally aired on February 9, 2019,  two days before Josh White’s birthday on February 11th (1914).
