Canal Street Tavern was a Dayton, Ohio Original. On January 6, 2018 we celebrated with Canal Street Stories at Yellow Cab Tavern. There were smiles, laughter, and a sense of reverence for a listening room and Mr. Mick Montgomery.
A week later, we recieved word that Mick Montgomery had passed away. A 1964 graduate of Fairview High School, Mick changed the way people viewed and listened to music in the Dayton, Ohio area.
Mick opened Canal Street Tavern in 1981. Until the day it closed in 2013, Canal was the quintessential listening room for music in Southwestern Ohio.
These are the memories we collected over two weeks in January of 2018. Canal Street Tavern changed my life. As a teenager reading Spin magazine and writer Jim Greer covering the Dayton Music Scene, my worldview was forever changed. In 2013, I began covering the Dayton Music Scene for Gem City Podcast. The imprint that Mick and Canal left can never be fully expressed. We can only hope to leave you with these memories of an iconic time, person, and place that will forever hold a place in the hearts and minds of many.
These are the Canal Street Stories. Thanks to Yellow Cab Tavern, Jeff Opt, Shelly Hulce, Story Slam Dayton, and all involved with this event.

Music is important in the lives of the people of the Dayton, Ohio community. The home of Funk music, Indie Rock bands Guided By Voices and the Breeders, and host to many memorable performances at various clubs as well as Hara Arena and Nutter Center.
Izzy Rock, the host/producer of Gem City Podcast travelled to Fairborn, Ohio to the home of R.I.N.D. vocalist/guitarist Kyle Andes to chat with Kyle and Ryan Palcic, bassist of the mighty Thundertaker, in a Joe Rogan Experience style conversational discussion about all things music.
This is a two and a half hour conversation that wasn’t edited. I simply slapped the intro and two songs at the end. You get the conversation that we had on that weekday night in January.

In our newest “Dayton Dining” installment host Libby Ballengee chats with Dayton Dining expert Lisa Grigsby about one of our favorite meals of the week: weekend brunches! Where are the best places to go? We don’t mention all the wonderful places that serve breakfast everyday like The Brunch Club, Butter Cafe, Tanks, Legacy Pancake House, First Watch, The Waffle House, The Blueberry Cafe, and Golden Nugget, but concentrate on eateries that have a special Saturday and Sunday menu of eggs Benedict, french toast and a Bloody Mary or mimosa!
In 1895 a British writer, Guy Beringer, wrote “Brunch: A Plea” in Hunter’s Weekly. He wanted people to gather for a late breakfast on Sundays not necessarily for the food but for the experience:
By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well. Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.
We have to agree with him! Sunday brunch is becoming a more popular meal in restaurants then every before. Data from Google Trends show that search interest in brunch has been rising steadily since 2004 with the most popular searches coming around Easter and Mother’s Day. According to that same research, brunch tends to be more popular with younger urban dwellers.
Brunch also gets credit for popularizing day drinking. The creation of the Bloody Mary and Mimosa are attributed to the social events of the 1920’s during Prohibition, when those who still had access to alcohol often mixed it with juice to hide the fact that it hadn’t been aged for long. Nothing say brunch better that bottomless mimosa’s.
Thanks for listening to this yummy episode – and to Yellow Cab Tavern for their sponsorship!

Dayton, Ohio’s dark and ambient indie band Goodnight Goodnight formed as a sort of music therapy for its members. Assembling in late February 2015 after a member of the band lost his son to suicide the members decided that they’d write and record music for the simple joy of fellowship and camaraderie.
Izzy Rock traveled to their practice space/home in New Carlisle for a Storyteller podcast.
In 2018 the band is releasing the album Control. Control is the new album from Dayton’s own GoodnightGoodnight. Come celebrate and purchase the new CD Saturday February 10 at South Park Tavern as they release their sophomore record with special guests OldNews.

“Atmospheric shoegazing indie rock from one of Dayton’s most interesting bands. The arrangements will remind you of the Cocteau Twins at a party for Robert Smith hosted by Radiohead. Some of the most interesting deconstruction of indie music in the Dayton area.” Art Jipson –YourTuesdayAfternoonAlternative.com
“From the first piano notes and twinkling bells of Goodnight Goodnight’s “Plan on Playing,” you think you’re being lulled into a luxurious sleep. Which is why once the warping, My Bloody Valentine-esque guitars and hypnotic drum kit burst on the scene, you’re pulled into a slightly eerie, but utterly mesmerizing dream. This five-piece’s dreamy music, including 2015’s Don’t Fade Out EP, is tied together by Amanda Thornton’s haunting vocals, and if their set Saturday includes “Plan on Playing,” get ready to sway, then dance, then break down, then return to reality.”

When we heard about the closing of Good Samaritan Hospital, long a medical institution that has served western Montgomery County and the surrounding communities, we were saddened. Add on the possible closing of multiple public schools in west Dayton, the closing of Aldi, one of few grocery stores in the area – we at Gem City Podcast got alarmed. What is happening in this area of our community to drive even further disinvestment? How did this start, and what, if anything, can be done about it?
We invited community leaders to come speak with us about these changes, and lucky for us, they were available at short notice to come have what call a “community conversation” with host Libby Ballengee. Joining her is Mary McDonald, the Mayor of Trotwood, Amaha Sellassie, Director for Center of Applied Social Issues at Sinclair Community College, and Scott Sliver, Associate Pastor/Worship Leader at The Vineyard, A pretty good church and Executive Committee at Dayton Unit NAACP.
This episode is a frank and long overdue conversation about the historic practice of redlining, the practice of denying services, either directly or through selectively raising prices, to residents of certain areas based on the racial or ethnic composition of those areas. A lot of people don’t realize this was actively practiced in Dayton, causing considerable less opportunity for development in west Dayton. What we have now is the result of years of compounding effect, and the wounds those have caused. So often we don’t hear from the people living in this community, so we were happy to give them this opportunity.
We hope you learn from this episode, and hope to continue more conversations like this!
