Aired on Thursday, April 26th.

Our guest is Bernard Uzan, a witty and insightful 50-year veteran of the performing arts industry, who has worked with several different opera and theatrical companies over the years in a range of positions (including a bit of directorial work with Tulsa Opera back in the 1980s). He'll be the stage director for Puccini's "Turandot," to be presented on April 27th and 29th at the Tulsa PAC. (More info on that production is posted here.)

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.
