WYSO Public Radio is pleased to welcome a new show to its evening music line up. The Jewel Case will air on Thursdays, 8-11pm beginning January 7, 2016. The Jewel Case will feature “deep cuts and forgotten musical treasures and curiosities” curated by host Tod Weidner, who will frame each week’s show with a theme.
“I am delighted to officially welcome Tod Weidner to the WYSO music broadcasting family,” says WYSO Music Director Niki Dakota and host of WYSO’s mid-day music program, Excursions. “It was exactly a year ago he began training to fill in on Excursions, but it quickly became plain for all to hear that he should pilot his own ship of songs.”
A lifelong Miami Valley resident, Tod Weidner grew up in Ludlow Falls before moving to Dayton in the early 1990s. He graduated from Milton-Union High School and Sinclair Community College, and also attended the Columbus College Of Art & Design. Weidner has been heavily involved in the Dayton Music Scene for over 20 years, as both a solo performer and a member of The Motel Beds, Shrug, The American Static, and Set The Controls, among many other local bands.
