Oklahoma gets so much national attention for dubious achievements — obesity, lack of health insurance, Sally Kern — it’s worth taking stock when a media outlet of some repute actually gives us an attaboy. In this case, the affirmation was courtesy PRI’s This American Life, which recently spotlighted the Sooner state for its widely lauded preschool program.

V/H/S

Be kind, rewind ... or die.


Horror

Rod Lott
My problem with most found-footage films is that there's not much to them. Most can be described legitimately as an hour of buildup for one scene of payoff. When you shorten the stories, however, as is done in the horror anthology V/H/S, you have a handful of payoffs without all that pesky incidental padding.

The Great Gildersleeve Movie Collection

You’d have to be a harrrrrd man not to like it.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Now that I’ve devoured Warner Archive’s The Great Gildersleeve Movie Collection, I know who my mom was referring to all those years. It’s irrelevant for your enjoyment of the set, but Harold Peary’s Gildersleeve character proved so popular on the Fibber McGee and Molly radio program, he was spun off into his own show (and eventually TV and these films).

Features

Rachael Cervenka
In 1992, tax accountant Doyle Brewer was inspired to bring Christian radio to northern Oklahoma. He didn’t have a clue what he was doing, but he felt called to this mission. Despite modest beginnings, his vision transformed into something much bigger than he ever dreamed.

KKNG of kings

The transformation of KKNG to religious radio is just the latest gain for the Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting Network.


Features

Jerry Bohnen
Larry Sousa had wanted to work in radio news since he was a child. Things didn’t work out that way for the 71-year-old — until now. Decades later, the Norman resident and devout Catholic isn’t just working in radio, but Catholic radio: Oklahoma City’s KKNG 97.3 FM.

It’s not cool to make fun of someone’s body. It’s less cool to do it in print ... especially if you want to keep your job.
