Museum Confidential (S6E3): John Lurie

lurie-art.jpg

Many people have been incorrectly praised as a "Renaissance Man," but the phrase perfectly describes Mr. John Lurie. Music, acting, painting, writing -- Lurie has really done it all. And he's nowhere near finished creating things. With a long-gestating memoir just being published and a second season of HBO's "Painting with John" now in production, the indie legend kindly agreed to join us recently for a wide-ranging chat.

Scott Gregory started working at Public Radio Tulsa in 2006; he started listening to public radio circa 1980, when he and NPR both marked their tenth birthdays (although only one of them commemorated the occasion with a party at Skate World). As this radio station's Production Director, Scott mainly serves as the producer and editor of StudioTulsa, the award-winning interview show. He also hosts and programs All This Jazz, which airs every Saturday night on Public Radio 89.5-1 from 9pm till midnight.
Jeff Martin is the Online Communities Manager for Philbrook Museum of Art. In his spare time, he's also a writer and editor. His most recent book, The Late American Novel: Writers on the Future of Books, was praised in The Economist and The New Yorker, and was selected as one of the Essential Summer Reads of 2011 by The Atlantic. Jeff is a longtime columnist for TulsaPeople magazine and the founder of the literary organization, Booksmart Tulsa.
