For many parents in Orlando, Florida, Richard Peeples, also known as Mr. Richard, is a big-time musical talent, thanks to his popularity with their children. Peeples and his band, the Pound Hounds, entertain children with what he describes as "whimsical pop rock." Henry Stone was a record company executive and producer in Miami, who recorded Ray Charles, James Brown, KC and the Sunshine Band, and was responsible for many disco recordings. The segment looks at a documentary being filmed about the recording legend. The Artisode also includes brief segments on recording artist Justin Hayward and the Moody Blues, an upcoming documentary on Bing Crosby, WUCF's Student Artist of the Week, Michael Romaniello, and the Jungle Book on Broadway.
