Great Gift Suggestions for the Holidays...from Two of Our Music Hosts Here at Public Radio Tulsa

Aired on Tuesday, December 19th.

On this edition of StudioTulsa, we offer some can't-miss suggestions for that music lover on your holiday shopping list. Our guests are both hosts of newly inaugurated music programs here at Public Radio Tulsa: Denis McGilvray (who shares with us a few world-music tips) hosts The Rhythm Atlas on Sunday nights at 6pm on Public Radio 89.5, and Jason Heilman (who tells us about a few of his favorite classical albums of 2017) is the host of the soon-to-launch Classical Tulsa, which will air every Friday at noon on Classical 88.7, beginning January 5th. Here, in broadcast order, are the albums and artists they spotlight for us:
'Ladilikan' by TRIO DA KALI & KRONOS QUARTET (World Circuit)
'Lándini' by AURELIO (Real World)
'Mogoya' by OUMOU SANGARE (No Format)
'World Music Network' Subscription Service -- a monthly music-delivery program offered by the UK-based Rough Music Guides (please see worldmusic.net for more info)
'Golijov: Azul' by YO-YO MA / THE KNIGHTS / ERIC JACOBSEN (Warner Classics)
'The Complete RCA Recordings' by SEIJI OZAWA & THE CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (Sony Music)

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.
