We've been at this Tunes & Blooms things for a while now, and this year, we're stretching out a bit. So, tonight is Reggae Night at the Zoo! The weather is beautiful, the tulips are in full bloom, and it's going to be another amazing night of music and family fun at the Cincinnati Zoo.
Well, it's happened again. WNKU's Music Director and Afternoon Music host, John Patrick, met Johnny Law. He fought the law and well, you know how the rest of it goes. At least it's for a good cause this time.
Now in its 8th season, Tunes & Blooms has become one of WNKU's favorite annual events. It occurs every Thursday night in April and features some of the best musical acts our region has to offer playing amongst the tulips of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Each week, the Zoo dispenses with the usual admission fee at 5pm allowing visitors to roam the animal exhibits for free before settling down to enjoy live music from 6p to 8p. Bring a picnic or choose from the excellent food options available on site. They even serve local micro-brews at the Zoo.
We filled up fast with WNKU members and unfortunately have no more room for this Monday's Studio 89 with Frightened Rabbit. Of course, you can listen live to the performance Monday night at 7pm on 89.7, 105.9, 104,1, or online right here by clicking on one of the Listen Live links to the right of this page.
