Aired on Tuesday, October 2nd.

On this edition of ST, we learn about the first-annual Wine, Jazz & World Fete, which will happen soon in downtown Tulsa -- from Thursday the 4th through Saturday the 6th -- at both the Guthrie Green and Duet (i.e., Tulsa's brand-new jazz club). This festival, to be hosted by Public Radio Tulsa's Scott Gregory on both Friday and Saturday, will boast outstanding jazz and world-music artists, fine wines, delicious culinary offerings, performance art, kids' activities, and more. Our two guests are Mike Koster (co-director of the nonprofit Tulsa Roots Music series) and Jeff Sloan (program manager of Duet), who tell us that this weekend-long festival will feature the laudable likes of Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Delfeayo Marsalis, The Bad Plus, Yemen Blues, and many others. Also on today's show, commentator Jeff Martin remembers his late friend, Cindy Hulsey, who died recently -- and who was one of the leading lights on Tulsa's literary landscape.

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.
