ST for the Holidays: Music and Memories from Public Radio Tulsa Staffers (Encore presentation.)

Aired on Monday, December 22nd.

(Note: This program originally aired in December of 2013.) On this edition of ST, we tap into the unmistakable holiday cheer that's currently wafting through our offices like so much thick fog in a John Durkee crack-of-dawn weather report. In other words, we sit down with a few of our co-workers here at Public Radio Tulsa to chat about which Christmas songs matter most to them and why. Please note, however, that due to certain music-rebroadcast-rights-related issues, we are not able to offer an online "stream" of this particular show. But, for the record, here's a rundown of who we spoke to...and what we heard:

Steve Clem, Operations Director: "Merry Christmas Darling" by The Carpenters

Frank Christel, Director of Broadcast Services: "Green Chri$tma$" by Stan Freberg

Casey Morgan, Development Director: "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt (Original 1953 Version, Only!)

John Wooley, Host of Swing on This (Heard Saturdays at 7pm on Public Radio 89.5): "Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)" by Luigi Balletto

Rich Fisher, General Manager of PRT and Host of StudioTulsa: "Winter Wonderland" by Tony Bennett

Cheers, folks. Thanks for listening, and Happy Holidays to all.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
