Dan and Cheryl Foliart -- a Hollywood Composer and a Music Executive -- Visit the TU Campus

Aired on Monday, March 30th.

On this edition of AT, an interesting and far-reaching chat with Dan and Cheryl Foliart -- a husband-and-wife team who are, respectively, a Hollywood composer and a music executive, and who are both currently visiting TU as J. Donald Feagin Guest Artists. (You can read more about the activities they will participate in during their two-day visit to the TU campus here.) The couple speaks with us about how they got started in the film-and-TV subset of the music business, how their careers have grown and developed over time, and how they themselves met. They also talk about some of the recent and quite fundamental changes that have affected the music world -- and indeed, affected all of the media landscape, including film/TV/video production. By way of background, Dan is best known for his work on "Roseanne," "7th Heaven," "Laverne & Shirley," and "Beverly Hills 90210," while Cheryl Foliart has served as a Vice-President for Walt Disney Company since 1996 (and has worked on shows like "Home Improvement," "Lost," "Ugly Betty," "Scrubs," and "Grey's Anatomy").

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.
