A Gift Of Better Health

Help someone you love kick the cigarette habit this Christmas with help from Good Smaug Vapor Lounge in Beavercreek. Will Harris: “Butch Brown gave me an e cigarette starter kit from Good Smaug over two months ago and I haven’t smoked a cigarette since! I feel better and I’m happier knowing that I’m doing something positive. Quitting smoking has been easy with the help from Good Smaug!”

The 13th Gift

We’ve known the Smith family for nearly twenty years and remember well living through this story with them. The author, Joanne Huist Smith, is from Dayton. At a recent book signing at Books and Company at The Greene, there was hardly room to stand and virtually every book on hand was sold! You’ll love this book.         Will Harris

Where The Rivers Meet

Create Dayton

Click picture to view video

Published on Aug 20, 2014          

In the summer of 2013, an array of musicians, singers and dancers joined together to create a music video entitled Where There Is Love. The video was filmed and recorded in Dayton, Ohio and has been viewed by hundreds of thousands worldwide.
A year later, that journey continued with Where the Rivers Meet, a second music video with a new, multicultural cast of musicians and dancers.
These projects enrich “Welcome Dayton: Immigrant-Friendly City,” a nationally-recognized initiative that seeks to bridge communication barriers and cultural differences. The lyrical message of Where the Rivers Meet is a powerful illustration of that vision, as well as the goal of connecting the world through music. Dayton sits at the convergence of rivers—a perfect metaphor for the blending of people, cultures and ideas.

Whether you’re an iPhone, iPad or Android user, we have you covered with an app for your device! These apps were custom built for DDR by our partners, Liquid Compass.

Mobile Listening Tips

1. Download and use our FREE mobile apps – it’s more stable and it’s a quicker connect.

2. Make sure to disconnect when you’re done listening. This is important because when you reconnect to the stream, you’ll be listening “current.” If you don’t do this, what you hear may be way behind what’s actually playing.

3. Refresh occasionally. This again keeps you current.

4. If you are driving you may notice periods of “drop out.” This is normal because most 3g and 4g networks are overtasked. Even if you have 3 or 4 bars (for data and phone calls a great signal). We stream in High Definition Stereo which requires a lot more bandwidth, but this gives you the best quality sound possible. Be patient! Cell providers are working hard to improve their delivery and as time goes on, you will have a better, more dependable experience.

Since partnering with Liquid Compass in early January, we have had a 99.65% up time! We also have no limit on the number of listeners that can connect to our stream. We use the latest “state of the art” technology to deliver the best quality audio we can provide. It costs more but we feel it’s worth it! Enjoy and remember, your feedback is always welcome. Thanks for listening to DDR, the “Voice of the City!”
