An Art Reborn: Modern Japanese Prints from the AMAM Collection

The Sound of Applause
Posted June 8, 2000

The art of education is on display now at Oberlin College, the home of the Allen Memorial Art Museum. It is here where select Oberlin art history students get the chance to play the role of curator, learning what it takes to put together an exhibition for a nationally renowned museum. Recently, Oberlin senior Adrianna Del Collo put together the dynamic exhibit "An Art Reborn: Modern Japanese Prints from the AMAM Collection." Around Noon's Dee Perry paid a visit to the Allen and spoke with Adrianna and her supervisor, Charles Mason, Curator of Asian Art.

The Memorial Oaks: Maintaining the Memorial, Memories

The Sound of Applause
Posted May 26, 2000

Since the founding of the state of Israel in 1948, the practice of planting trees as gesture of remembering those who have died remains to this day. Trees are seen as a renewal and continuation of life. Decades prior to the beginning of the Jewish state though, the city of Cleveland embarked on tree planting unlike any other. In 1919, some 850 oak trees were planted in memory of those killed in World War I. The plantings began by what is now Gordon Park, at the beginning of Martin Luther King Blvd., and wind up in Shaker Heights.

The Church of the SubGenius

The Sound of Applause
Posted May 24, 2000

This year, the cofounder of a very unusual religion set up shop in Cleveland. The Church of the SubGenius has had a following around town for years-nationwide its members number in the thousands. But this church is less about spirit than satire. The Reverend Ivan Stang preaches a message of salvation for the sluggish. (Some call it heresy! Others call it–funny!) Often you'll find him performing with the Church's Un-Official House Band, Einstein's Secret Orchestra. 90.3's April Baer has this profile of Reverend Stang and his do-it-yourself approach to salvation.

On the Road at Oberlin College

The Sound of Applause
Posted May 19, 2000

Our intrepid band of "Around Noon" staffers-Host and Producer Dee Perry, Assistant Producer Dave DeOreo, and Technical Producer/Engineer Jeff Carlton, pulled into the Finney Chapel parking lot at Oberlin College, ready to begin another "on the road" adventure. The idea behind these occasional excursions is to reach out to the show's existing audience (wherever they may be), to discover new listeners in the process, and to get out into the sunshine whenever possible!

40 Years with Peter, Paul & Mary

The Sound of Applause
Posted April 6, 2000

For those of us old enough to remember, it's hard to believe that Peter, Paul and Mary are on the road to celebrate their fortieth anniversary. Back when the trio first hit the charts in 1961, the wave of folk music was riding high on college campuses, and coffee houses. The Weavers and the Kingston Trio had already made their mark on the record buying public, and anyone that picked up a guitar had a chance to be heard at a hootenanny. Peter, Paul and Mary came to Cleveland on April 7th to get the 40th anniversary tour underway. 90.3 WCPN's Jim Goldurs spoke with Peter Yarrow about the early days of the group.
