The program is hosted and produced by Denis McGilvray in the studios of Public Radio Tulsa at the University of Tulsa. [For the time being during the COVID-19 pandemic, the program is being produced from my home using Adobe Audition and an Audio-Technica AT2020USB mic.] Each week’s program features an eclectic mix of musical styles from all over the globe, and some weeks the program is focused around a particular theme or holiday.
