Shrug have been making music in Dayton since the 90’s. @theizzyrock gets the lowdown of their origin story, rig rundown, and we discuss their new album, “Easy Is The New Hard” on Magnaphone Records.
Shrug return with their proverbial “White Album”…or perhaps their “Sandanista”. Easy is the New Hard isn’t decidedly Beatlesesque and though The Clash have always been an influence, it doesn’t really sound like their 1980 triple album. Rather, it’s comparable as a stylistically diverse effort that spans multiple sides of vinyl and explores the band’s deepest roots and most adventurous writing. Songwriter/guitarist Tod Weidner clearly enjoyed a major bout of inspiration following the release of 2016’s Age of Ashes, and it’s been captured here.
In truth, it’s still a solid rock album at its core and remains faithful to what the band does best. Fans aren’t going to feel alienated here. However, the influences of glam, psychedelia and Laurel Canyon have never been more evident. As Weidner puts it, “there is a lot of ‘swirl’ on this record.” It’s fun, fresh, instantly classic, and still wholly Shrug.
The mission of The Disability Foundation is to enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities by complementing public benefits through the prudent management of financial resources.
If you love someone with a disability or are planning for the long-term care of a family member, you know it’s important to cover basic and daily needs, but you also want to ensure the enrichment and quality of life of the person so you can be confident they are living life to the fullest without concern for how their needs or wants will be met.
At the Disability Foundation, a supporting organization to the Dayton Foundation, we work with families to ensure their resources are utilized for the things that matter most to them and their family. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities by complementing public benefits through the prudent management of financial resources. To do this, the Foundation acts as Distribution Trustee of The Ohio Community Pooled Annuity Trust and the Ohio Community Pooled Flexible-Spending Trust.
What this means, is that you can set aside resources for the care, entertainment, daily needs and life’s little extras without interfering with SSI or Medicaid benefits. This became possible in 1993 when Congress authorized the creation of “pooled” trusts to hold funds for people with disabilities without penalty to their benefits. Ohio, in cooperation with the Medicaid program, recognizes and exempts these trusts.
The Disability Foundation is a Type I Supporting Organization under the auspices of The Dayton Foundation. The Disability Foundation maintains its own tax exempt status (501 (c)(3), however the Dayton Foundation oversees daily activities and monitors its finances. The Dayton Foundation appoints all board members. At least one board member of The Disability Foundation is a staff member of The Dayton Foundation.

John Dubuc stops by DATV to chat with @theizzyrock about his new album from Magnaphone Records released in June 2019, childhood memories, influences, rig rundown, and much more.
The singer-songwriter has certainly come a long way from the precocious 13-year-old who formed the punk band, the Obvious, with his buddies in the summer of 1983. That group released two singles, an EP and an album before dissolving unceremoniously in Chicago in the mid-1990s.
Dubuc spent a decade in the Windy City, where he played in the bands John Henry’s Train and Face For Radio. After returning to the Dayton area in the early 2000s, he performed solo and as a sideman in other groups but resisted forming another band until 2017.
Dubuc recently discussed the making of “Where Have I Been All Your Life?” and his roots rock group, the Guilty Pleasures, which features Rich Reuter (guitar, keyboards), Tom Rastikis (bass) and Brian Hoeflich (drums).
Where Have I Been All Your Life? It’s a valid question coming from long-time favorite, but under-recorded, song smith John Dubuc.
Well, for many, this master of wit and melody has been a familiar voice at songwriter nights, coffee shops and late-night bars in southern Ohio for most of the time they’ve been catching live music. There’s just never been a record…
Fortunately, a couple years ago, Dubuc formed a fruitful recording partnership with bassist and studio wiz Tom Rastikis and a cast of heavy hitters began buzzing around the sessions. What we get with the debut is a fully realized and meticulously curated collection of Dubuc’s best work embellished by some of the best players in the Dayton, OH music scene. It’s familiar and rooted in Midwestern rock and roll heritage from the Twin Cities, through Chicago, past the band’s front porch and just slightly reaching down south, but also fresh and unlike anything you’re likely to have heard unless you’ve been fortunate enough to catch the recently formed Guilty Pleasures.
The ability to weave subtle humor with bittersweet, heartbreaking melodies is perhaps Dubuc’s greatest strength and while the expertly arranged music has abundant intrigue to captivate listeners alone, it’s his penchant for unpretentious, deadpan witticism that keeps us hitting “play” repeatedly.
Running for Congress is not a path to be taken lightly. It takes a large amount of courage, ideas, solutions, relationships and cash. Despite the obstacles and intensity, an influx of women ran for Congress in 2018, most of them first time candidates. In Dayton, local entrepreneur Theresa Gasper challenged Republican Mike Turner for our House of Representatives seat. Although Turner won re-election in our very gerrymandered district, Gasper came the closest to upsetting this longtime incumbent.
In this episode with catch up with Theresa, to ask her about her campaign experience, her advice to other would-be candidates and her thoughts on the current state of politics, including gun control legislation after the mass shooting.
About Theresa Gasper
Theresa grew up in Dayton’s South Park neighborhood, as the youngest of four siblings. She is a proud fourth-generation Daytonian and small business owner, having established two successful businesses in the Miami Valley. Her father, Bill, instilled in her the values of hard work, grit and determination. He worked for a local hardware store after losing his longtime job at age 55 and then bought and operated a framing shop. Theresa’s mother, Wanda, managed former Rep. Chuck Whalen’s district office and showed her the importance of public service. Theresa’s earliest memories involve passing out the Barbara Whalen Cookbook at the Montgomery County Fair and delivering Chuck’s newsletters door-to-door on weekends. Taking a page out of her father’s book, Theresa bought a local telephone-answering service as a young mother and built it into the largest business center in Dayton over the course of 14 years. For the past 12 years through her current company, Full Circle Development, she has worked to make Dayton a better place by reinvesting in and renovating homes that have fallen into disrepair in light of the housing crisis. Theresa’s passion for her home of Southwest Ohio drives her activism. Her extensive background in housing advocacy includes service on community boards that educate first-time homebuyers, coach existing homeowners through loan modification, and organize volunteer repairs for elderly homeowners. Theresa resides in Beavercreek with her husband Dave and two cats. She is a diehard UD Flyers fan.
