Fall 2007 Episode 1 ~ Campus Events (Oct 16, 2007)
Assignment: Radio presents the first all-new broadcast of its seventh season by taking a look at several events going on around the University of Oklahoma campus. Katrina Smith visits a campus group that specializes in improvisational comedy. O.U. Improv! performs across the state and teaches workshops in conjunction with public schools, library systems, and other academic institutions, and performs several times on campus this fall. Long before Native Americans, Boomers, and Sooners came sweeping down the plain, giant lizards and even camels roamed throughout Oklahoma. Boris Georgievski takes a look at the Collecting Oklahoma exhibit at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, which runs through January 2008. Bianca Lopez spent time at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art examining a pottery exhibit that showcases the works of two families of Native American artists. Works by five generations will be shown together in this, the first exhibition that pairs paintings with pottery and develops as a whole the artistic legacy of these families. Will Prescott also heads down to "the Fred" for the weekly series FredFilms. George Romero's 1968 horror classic Night of the Living Dead is the featured film this week, and Will speaks with both the organizers of the event, as well as several OU Film and Video Studies professors to find out how this low-budget cult film established the zombie movie as a major horror subgenre. And Peju Faboro talks with members and the director of OU's Jazz Bands about their upcoming performance, as well as their love of one of America's original art forms. Their 2007-2008 Concert Season kicks off with a performance Thursday, October 18th, and their full calendar of events is available on the OU School of Music's Web site.
