The lineup for this Wednesday night includes two performances you won’t want to miss and, of course, they also promote becoming a member to WOSU:

8pm-9:30pm: Straight No Chaser: Live from New York thumbnail_81
9:30pm-11pm: 4Troops: Live from The Intrepid 4troops_group20shot20close20up_pc20richard20corman

Both groups will be coming to central Ohio and you can get special WOSU tickets to attend with your contribution to support all our programming. I had an opportunity to meet the 4Troops recently and they are awesome talents.

The 4Troops appear at the Midland Theatre in Newark on November 4th and Straight No Chaser is at the Midland on Sept. 24th. The Midland Theatre is an old refurbished beautiful Theatre. It was built in 1928, but as is typical with such theatres in small towns, it started to decay and was closed for nearly two decades. The savior of the theatre was Dave Longaberger of the Longaberger Company (whose large “Basket” HQ is right outside of Newark). The company spent some 8 million over 8 years to refurbish the Midland. It is worth the trip to Newark to see this gem of a theatre.

Tune in and let us know what you think.
