Tulsa Ballet Concludes Its Season with "Off the Floor: Creations in Studio K"

Aired Wednesday, April 25th.

Today, we welcome back to our program Marcello Angelini, who's been the artistic director at Tulsa Ballet since 1995. As a critic writing for Dance Insider once noted: "To look at what Marcello Angelini has accomplished [since he arrived at] Tulsa Ballet is to see what a community-based arts revolution looks like." The glorious revolution continues with a new production --- the final show of the 2011-2012 season --- called "Off the Floor: Creations in Studio K," which will soon be staged at Tulsa Ballet's Studio K facility in Brookside (at 1212 East 45th Place South).

Concerning the Recently Issued Survey on Race from the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation

Aired on Tuesday, April 24th.

Last week, the nonprofit John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation released a survey of Tulsa residents' views on race relations. This survey was called for, and completed, before the recent (and perhaps racially motivated) shootings in North Tulsa in the pre-dawn hours of Good Friday --- but it's hardly surprising that, given the shocking tragedy of those violent acts and the coincidental appearance of this new survey, people throughout our community are speaking about issues of race with a candor that seems, in many cases, as rare as it is welcome.

America's Defense Budget in an Age of Cutbacks

Aired on Friday, April 20th.

Significant and far-ranging budgetary cutbacks are planned, over the next several years, for the United States Armed Forces --- how, if at all, will these reductions affect our country's military stature on the world stage? And how, if at all, will they influence our own feelings (or perceptions) of security here at home? On today's show, we welcome Col. Thomas X. Hammes (USMC, Retired), who recently gave an address to the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations entitled “Defense in Times of Austerity.” In his three-decade stint in the Marine Corps, Col.
