Dee Perry spotlights the new Cleveland Play House production - Breath and Imagination - about the journey of African-American tenor Roland Hayes from rural Georgia to Carnegie Hall with a performance by the cast. Plus we hear from the playwright behind Breath and Imagination as Dee chats with Daniel Beaty. And we share a musical conversation with members of The Kinsman Dazz Band as they get ready for their gig this weekend at The Beachland Ballroom.
