Dee Perry welcomes Pat Hanych to share the musical history of Pat's in The Flats captured in the new photography exhibit on view at SPACE:Rock Gallery. Plus we look at the life of African-American playwright Lonne Elder III whose classic Ceremonies in Dark Old Men is onstage at Karamu House. And we meet the creative voices behind the live-action graphic novel coming to PlayhouseSquare - Intergalactic Nemesis.
