New research out of Johns Hopkins University has found that more than forty percent of people receiving medication for opioid addiction were also given prescriptions for other opioid painkillers during the time of treatment.

The researchers looked at pharmacy claims for more than 38,000 new buprenorphine users who filled prescriptions between 2006 and 2013 in 11 states. Buprenorphine is a drug used to treat opioid addiction.

If you are overweight and struggling with pain, eating a Mediterranean diet could help, a new study suggests. 

Researchers at Ohio State University looked at the relationship between weight, inflammation and pain. They found that eating anti-inflammatory foods, including seafood, fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats, helped relieve pain, regardless of how heavy someone was.

Sunday Night Jazz Showcase

Program #155 (February 26 at 8:00PM)

Brent Gallaher has been a favorite on the Cincinnati (OH) jazz scene for more than 25 years. His tonal and melodic conception is reminiscent of the great classic tenor men Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane and Joe Henderson; yet he adds his own personally and modern approach to the instrument.

Gallaher is a diverse musician. His work as a side man varies from small jazz ensembles, to big bands, to classic pop horn bands, and even the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra.

From the close-harmony brother acts of the 1930s evolved Charlie and Ira Louvin, ranking among the top duos in country music history. With Ira's incredibly high, pure tenor and Charlie's emotional and smooth melody tenor, they learned well from the Bolick brothers (the Blue Sky Boys), the Monroe Brothers, the Delmore Brothers, and other major family duos of the previous generation, preserving the old-time flavor while bringing this genre into the '50s, when country music moved to a newer sound.
