Conducting a search of what lies beyond the earth's surface just got a whole lot easier.

Ever since man set foot on earth we've wondered, are we alone? According to some, the answer is no! Last year, the Mutual UFO Network - around since 1969 - received over 6,000 sightings of unidentified flying objects in the U.S. Our search for other life has taken us to the moon, put a robot on Mars and placed telescopes in orbit around the earth. Now, conducting your own search of what lies beyond the earth's surface just got a whole lot easier thanks to the Geauga District Park. It recently opened something they call a Dark Sky Park which boasts it's very own observatory! That, in and of itself, is an interesting story but one that can’t be told without at least mentioning a man named Norm Oberle.

Doris Long has been a fixture in the Cleveland Jazz since the early 60s. In all that time there’s one thing that she’s never done - release an album. She performs in our Westfield Insurance Studio Theater, and explains why her first CD is "Long Overdue."

In the 1830's the 450-foot passageway that would become East 4th Street was a quiet residential neighborhood. Within a decade, the street would become a bustling center for business and entertainment interests, and within a century, that bustle would fade away to a dim memory. Hard to believe that an area now considered one of the coolest spots in Cleveland, was, at one point in its history described as a seedy side street. It's all in Alan Dutka's new book, "East Fourth Street: the Rise, Decline and Rebirth of an Urban Cleveland Street." He joins us on Applause.
