Now at the Sherwin Miller Museum and the Woody Guthrie Center: "Leonard Bernstein at 100"

Aired on Tuesday, January 29th.

Lenny Lives! Our guest on StudioTulsa is Bob Santelli, the founding executive director of the Los Angeles-based GRAMMY Museum. That museum is currently presenting a special new (traveling) exhibit here in Tulsa at two different venues: "Leonard Bernstein at 100" is on view at both the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art and the Woody Guthrie Center. It closes at each of these locations on April 29th. "Leonard Bernstein at 100" is an exhibition that, per the GRAMMY Museum website, "celebrates the centennial of America's greatest classical composer and conductor. Drawing from more than 150 photographs, personal items, papers, scores, correspondence, costumes, furniture, and films, [this show] marks the official exhibit of the centennial and is the most comprehensive retrospective of Bernstein's life and career ever staged in a museum setting."

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.
