Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The King Records 75th anniversary celebration this month winds up with several events this week including a panel discussion of Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Waite Hoyt by Reds historian Greg Rhodes and Nick Clooney, a presentation by Jim Tarbell about Ronnie Hollyman at the Main Library downtown, a performance at The Greenwich by the Spear Shakers, and a discussion by Christine Anderson about "The Kings and Queens of Cincinnati."  

 

In honor of the 75th anniversary of King Records this month, the last special I'm producing has a potpourri of topics from a look at the Tokyo Happy Coats and Playhouse in the Park's production of "Cincinnati King" to Darren Blase's efforts to showcase his King Records collection at Shake It Records, plus the preservation work being done to save the King Records studio on Brewster Avenue.  

This King Records Potpourri special will air on Saturday night, September 22nd, at 11pm and again Sunday evening, September 23rd, at 7pm.
