Tulsa Little Jam Begins a New Season of Showcasing Many of Our Community's Talented Musicians

little-jam-pic.jpg
Aired on Wednesday, May 15th.

On this edition of StudioTulsa, we learn about Tulsa Little Jam, a popular podcast, concert series, and far-reaching digital media platform that aims to spotlight our community's most talented musicians and singer-songwriters. Tulsa Little Jam will present its Season Two Opening Concert this coming Friday night, the 17th, at Guthrie Green (beginning at 5:30pm). A number of different local bands will be presented -- and filmed -- in live performance, and the concert will be part of the 2019 Mayfest weekend. Our guest are two of the folks who make Tulsa Little Jam happen: Juan Reinoso is the Show Host and Producer, and Meg Sutherland is the Public Relations Contact and Storyteller. Also on our show today, commentator Mark Darrah is remembering a recent era in world history that has definite connections with the U.S. right now -- i.e., the era in Romania between 1966 and 1990, when abortion and contraception were completely banned under the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceau?escu.

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.
