Program 226 marks the 50th episode of Mixed Media!!! Thanks to everyone who helped make Mixed Media a success -- from guests on the show to the loyal viewers at home and everyone in between!!!
You might recognize this guest from episode 110. In April of 2000, Ken Clay took over the position of Director of Programming at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. Before that, as Director of Cultural Diversity for the Kentucky Center for the Arts, he developed and presented such programs as "Midnite Ramble", "Global Visions", "Jazz Cabaret Series" and the annual "Jazz in Central Park", just to name a few. Ken talks about his background and tells us about some up-coming events at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.
As you know the Mixed Media camera crew goes out and about every week and this week they caught up with Davis McCombs at Hawley-Cooke Booksellers. A recent Courier-Journal article said that Davis McCombs may be Kentucky's best poet since Robert Penn Warren. Davis is a Harvard graduate and has won numerous awards for his poetry. If you want to find Davis McCombs, it's not hard to do. Just go to Mammoth Cave. He works there as a Cave Guide (and a Parking-Lot Guy). This Poet/Cave Guide/Parking-Lot Guy, has had a series of his prize winning poems published as a collection, "Ultima Thule."
The E Trio was formed in the Spring of 1999 from a weekly jam session. This group is dedicated to the modern jazz piano trio format as practiced by Chick Corea, Keith Jarret, Kenny Werner and Fred Hersch. The trio is made up of Todd Hildreth, piano (you may recognize Todd from the group Java Men); Chris Fitzgerald, bass; and Gary Claude, drums (who you may recognize from last week's show -- he performed with The Jazz Prophets.)
After the taping of this show we had a little celebration in the studio -- we reached our 50th episode! I'll fill you in on the celebration events on Program 227's page!
