Best of Fall 2009 (Feb 26, 2010)
On the first Assignment: Radio episode of 2010, we look back at some of the best stories from the fall 2009 semester. There were two students involved in the production of last semesterís episodes, and each has three stories presented in this hour long episode. Phil Rodriguez talks to local rocker Mike Hosty about his unorthodox career in music. Hosty is known for his eclectic live performances. In the interview he gives some insight into his philosophy about being an independent artist, and he analyzes the Norman music scene. Then Kristin Mason sits down with William Murray Tabb, a professor at The University of Oklahoma College of Law. Last year, Tabb received the David Ross Boyd Professorship, one of the most prestigious awards an OU professor can receive. Following that story, Rodriguez presents an informational piece about the H1N1 virus outbreak, which grabbed hold of what seemed like the entire nationís attention last year. Rodriguezís story focuses on local reactions to the outbreak. Mason then fills us in on an astronomy exhibit that OUís Bizzell Memorial Library hosted in celebration of the International Year of Astronomy 2009. The exhibit has since closed, but the story includes several interesting tidbits about famed astronomer Galileo. Then we hear another story by Rodriguez, this one about a performance from the Oklahoma Fancy Dancers, a group that celebrates Native American culture through colorful clothing and distinctive dancing. And finally Mason gives us a peak into the life of an OU student who is dealing with the challenges inherent in class work while taking on the even bigger challenge of raising a son as a single parent. The story is told in the audio narrative style, which means listeners will hear the story through the words of its subject, Peace Ossom.
