The race for governor of Ohio tightens up with polls showing John Kasich's lead over Governor Ted Strickland narrowing. Meanwhile, the Tea Party jumps into the Attorney General's race. And the federal government pumps big money into a new foreclosure prevention program, but will it fare better than previous efforts? On the Sound of Ideas reporters' roundtable, we'll discuss these developments plus the local impact of the Southwest Airlines-Airtran merger and the shoo-ins and the shunned on the latest list of Rock Hall nominees. Join us at 9 on 90.3

It’s nice to see a more critical success and influential artist like Tom Waits get nominated for the Rock Hall, but as we enter the 2010’s, I keep wondering if and when some of the more influential artists like The Smiths, Pixies, Gram Parsons and eventually a band like Radiohead will enter.

What kind of bar is being set when musicians like Bob Seger can be inducted but bands like The Smiths fail to get even a hint of recognition by the Induction committees?
