“It’s great to be back on the riverfront. ‘Dawg Dazzle’ stands as a shining example of how great things can happen when the city, county, symphony, parks and community-minded businesses come together with a common purpose,” according to Reeves Kirtner, vice president of Kindred Communications, which Huntington based company that owns eight radio channel stations in Huntington; said in their news press release about the upcoming concert.
