Oklahoma Voices: Winston Smith’s Offbeat and Subversive Collage Art / Tales of Really Bad Dates (Dec 01, 2008)
This week on Oklahoma Voices we speak with Oklahoma native Winston Smith (pictured at left) about his unique and subversive style of collage pop art. Smith – who named himself after the protagonist of George Orwell’s novel 1984 – designed the logo for the punk group the Dead Kennedys and has created album covers for bands like Green Day and Rage Against the Machine, as well as artwork for Playboy, Spin and The New Yorker.

Then, in the second half of the show, we feature excerpts from the Oklahoma City StorySlam, a monthly event that’s kind of like a poetry slam, except that participants tell stories related to a chosen theme. And at the end of the night, audience members vote for the best storyteller, and the winner gets a prize. Past themes have included “Busted,” “How We Met” and “Stranger in a Strange Land.” Today we’re airing excerpts from a StorySlam that took place last April on the topic of “Really Bad Dates.”

The next StorySlam is scheduled for 7pm on Friday, December 19th at the Istvan Art Gallery, 1218 North Western Ave. in Oklahoma City. The theme for the evening will be “Spirit” (interpreted however you wish). You can get more information on the series by going to or sending an e-mail to
