Aired on Tuesday, May 22nd.

On this broadcast of ST, we learn about a new book called "Art Deco Tulsa" -- and our guests are the two people who created it: Suzanne Fitzgerald Wallis wrote the text, and Sam Joyner made the photographs. As is noted of this book at its publisher's website: "Transformed from a cattle depot into the Oil Capital of the World, Tulsa emerged as an iconic Jazz Age metropolis. The Magic City attracted some of the nation's most talented architects, including Bruce Goff, Francis Barry Byrne, Frank Lloyd Wright, Joseph R. Koberling Jr., Leon B. Senter, and Frederick Kershner. Like their brazen oil-baron clients, they were not afraid to take chances, and the city still reflects the splendor of that fabulous era...." Note that Suzanne and Sam will be doing a signing for this book on Saturday afternoon, the 26th, at Decopolis in downtown Tulsa.
