Spring 2008 ~ Best of Fall 2007 (Feb 13, 2008)
Assignment: Radio returns to the airwaves for its eighth season as we showcase some of our best stories from the previous semester. Will Prescott travels to McAlester, Oklahoma to speak with guards and inmates in H-Unit, the Oklahoma State Penitentiary's "Supermax" wing. "Supermax" is the name used to describe "control-unit" prisons, or units within prisons, which represent the most secure levels of custody in the U.S. prison system. Katrina Smith examines how a newly acquired pipe organ will help OU's School of Music and the American Organ Institute expand its curriculum to offer a broader, more complete education of the instrument. As part of our Centennial Audio Narrative, we followed The Pride of Oklahoma as they traveled to New York City to march in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Will Prescott heads back inside H-Unit at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester. He also speaks with Curtis McCarty, a former Death Row inmate exonerated earlier this year, about life on the inside.
