Tulsa, Oklahoma – On today's show, a chat with Paul Dickson. He has just published a new book called "Unwritten Rules of Baseball: The Etiquette, Conventional Wisdom, and Axiomatic Codes of Our National Pastime." Baseball, of course, is all about rules . . . and stats, and records, and numbers, and so forth. But our focus for this edition of StudioTulsa is the vast and various "grey area" of the Summer Game (in terms of behavior, tradition, norms or standards, and so on).
Tulsa, Oklahoma – On today's show, we speak with James Ragan. He's written several plays and poetry collections, and has also worked as a screenwriter (on such major films as THE GODFATHER and THE DEERHUNTER). His latest book is a collection of poems called "Too Long a Solitude," and a major theme of this book is far-flung travels both real and imagined. Ragan is currently a Distinguished Visiting Professor at OU.
