As we bundle up against the cold, we had an interesting Sunday morning on TIAM. At 9:35 we talked to the author of a new book that tells the story of the Ferguson community coming together through art. Carol Swartout Klein’s “Painting for Peace in Ferguson” features the vivid images of hope and healing that people from around the region painted on the plywood windows in the aftermath of the riots. You can listen to, or download the interview here and learn more about the book here
At 8:35 we talked with Blues broadcaster Kelly Chase about the documentary “Pavol Demitra: 38” . It’s the story of former Blues forward Pavol Demitra, who was killed in a plane crash in September of 2011. Chase gives a heartfelt and emotional account of watching the film about his former teammate and close friend. You can see the movie March 8th and the Peabody Opera House. You can hear the interview here.
St. Louis and the music world lost a legend this weekend. Clark Terry played with all the greats, and broke the color barrier in becoming the first black staff musician hired by NBC. He also played in the legendary Tonight Show Band. Maria, a friend of Terry, gave a heartfelt tribute to him. You can listen to, or download it, here.
And it’s Oscar day! Harry Hamm gave us his picks. You can listen to them here and see how many he gets right!
Also today, we published our second episode of “Real Anchors of TIAM Weekend” on the KMOX Facebook page. In this episode, “Visiting Studio B”, we give you a quick tour and show you a little about how we do the program. You can watch it here. Hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for spending some of your weekend with us. Stay warm and we’ll talk to you next weekend!
