    Longtime Yellow Springs resident Steve Schwerner, who has hosted a jazz program on WYSO Public Radio for 50 years, since he was an Antioch College student, will host his last WYSO show Tuesday, Sept. 30, at 8 p.m. Schwerner and his wife, Nancy, will move to Brooklyn soon to be near their children and grandchildren. Schwerner is pictured above in the WYSO studio hosting his program.
