    New York had Nellie Bly, but Cincinnati had a dashing, controversial and pioneering woman journalist as well. Her name, sadly forgotten today, was Jessie M. Partlon.

    "Miss" Jessie M. Partlon (as she was known even after her marriage to attorney Millard Tyree in 1903) was the sort of reporter…

    Soul music is often defined as the moment when gospel and blues met and formed a new sound. Ray Charles is often given credit for this, but there were others, most notably the “5” Royales, who had immense success as a live act, but never sold as many records as such a pioneering group should have.
