On "Cue" -- A Preview of the Rock 'N Rib BBQ Festival in Downtown Tulsa

Aired on Thursday, September 17th.

Summer is now, alas, leaving the proverbial building...but barbecue doesn't have to exit along with it. On this edition of ST, we learn about the free-to-the-public Rock 'N Rib BBQ Festival, which is happening at 3rd and Denver in downtown Tulsa from today (the 17th) through Sunday (the 20th). Our guests are both participating is this mouth-watering fun-filled sauce-smothered food-fest: Mark Grant is a pit-master who owns and operates Porky Chicks BBQ & Catering in Fayetteville, AR, and Eric Schleicher works in the marketing department at SMG Tulsa -- the management company for both the BOK Center and the Tulsa Convention Center -- which is presenting this event. Also on today's show, as we all make the annual back-to-school transition, commentator Janet Pearson fondly (yet also sadly) remembers a favorite high school teacher, Mr. Dykes, who died recently.

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.
