Racine & Me October 28, 2018: Tony Evers, Deadgar’s Dark Coffin Classics, and Fleeing Artists “The Glass Menagerie”
Jacob Kittilstad noted that Election Day was about two weeks away before starting his conversation with Tony Evers – the Democrat on the ballot running for Wisconsin Governor. Evers reflected on his campaign and talked about his connection to Healthcare issues – sharing a personal story about his past cancer diagnosis which he says would be considered a pre-existing condition.
Tony Evers also talked about his childhood in Wisconsin. He says he grew up in Plymouth and met his wife while they were both in elementary school. He also says he once won 3rd place playing a battle-of-the-bands gig at the old Sheboygan Armory. He was the bass player in a group known as “The Romeros” – but he says his music career is long behind him.
In honor of Halloween, Jacob invited the hosts of Deadgar’s Dark Coffin Classics to the studio to talk about the best movies to watch for the spooky occasion. Co-hosts Deadgar Winter and Sorceress Celeste talked about how their public access program came to be – and shared info on how people can watch them over-the-air or online. They also gave three classic suggestions for films that will put you in a Halloween kind of mood – and made the case for watching movies in Black and White.
The Fleeing Artists Theatre is bringing their latest production to the Rhode Center for the Arts. They are performing Tennessee Williams’s “The Glass Menagerie” and the co-directors say it’s great to be performing indoors again after a summers-worth of theater in the park. Two actresses also performed a brief scene exploring a plot point involving shyness and a parent’s persuasion.
Guests: Tony Evers – Democratic Wisconsin Gubernatorial Candidate, Deadgar Winter – Deadgar’s Dark Coffin Classics Co-Host, Celeste Parker - Deadgar’s Dark Coffin Classics Co-Host, Kenneth Montley – “The Glass Menagerie” Co-Director, Alex Metalsky – “The Glass Menagerie” Co-Director, Denise “D” Johnson – “Laura”, Kim Emer – “Amanda”
