Richard Higgs

Co-host of Folk Salad

Richard Higgs moved to Tulsa from Kansas in January, 1980. He first set foot in Public Radio Tulsa's studios in 1996, as a guest on Studio Tulsa, to promote his book about working the American wheat harvest, "Bringing In The Sheaves". He's a passionate devotee of Oklahoma music, past and present.

Higgs and co-host Scott Aycock proposed "Folk Salad" to KWGS in September, 1999, so that they could finally hear music they loved on the radio --and give Oklahoma musicians a place on their own airwaves. Higgs has had many jobs, including longhaul trucker, oilfield worker, migrant farmworker, author, journalist, and, for the last twelve years, Public Radio Disc Jockey.
