Longtime folk/rock favorites Over the Rhine celebrate the holiday season and a new album with a special weekend of performances, including their annual "holiday homecoming" concert at the Taft Theatre. The band is offering a special VIP ticket package for events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. WNKU-FM is offering its own weekend packages.

One of our (and your) favorite public radio stations, WNKU-FM, is hosting a one-day fund-raising drive Dec. 1. Dubbed One Day Wednesday, it's an opportunity for you to contribute before the end of the year and claim a last-minute tax deduction. Plus it would certainly help the station balance the 2010 books. And you can pick up a copy of the local holiday album 'Ring.'
