TU's Oklahoma Center for the Humanities and Musical Theatre Dept. Co-Present "The Vaudeville Museum"

Aired on Friday, January 22nd.

On this installment of ST, we learn about "The Vaudeville Museum" -- a special evening of Vaudeville history, perspective, and performance -- that will be staged at TU's McFarlin Library at 7pm both tonight and tomorrow night (the 22nd and 23rd). It's an interactive, interdisciplinary, and free-to-the-public presentation that's recently been created by Machele Miller-Dill, Director of TU's Musical Theatre Program, who also performs in this throwback event and is one of our guests today. Our other guest is Adrian Alexander, Dean of McFarlin Library, who also performs in "The Vaudeville Museum," which might be described as part guided tour, part public lecture, part showbiz revue, and part raunchy joke-fest. It is vaudeville, after all. (More about the "The Vaudeville Museum" can be found here.) Also on our program, commentator Janet Pearson is thinking about that (alas) inescapable facet of the modern-day workplace: office politics.

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.
