In The Region:

   Most rock music fans in the region are familiar with Patrick Carney -   one half of the band, The Black Keys.   But a few decades ago they would have known his uncle – Ralph Carney,  the horn player for the new wave band Tin Huey. 

    Fans and critics like to use the word “wacky” when referring to him but Ralph Carney has a new album of fairly straightforward old jazz tunes coming out at the end of this month.    He’s also making live appearances tonight in Cleveland and tomorrow in Akron.    WKSU’s Mark Urycki has more on a guy who’s been called the King of the New Wave horn . . .
