The Roundtable

Weekdays, 9:00am

WAMC's The Roundtable is an award-winning, nationally recognized eclectic talk program. The show airs from 9am to noon each weekday and features news, interviews, in-depth discussion, listener call-ins, music, and much (much) more! Hosted by Joe Donahue and produced by Sarah LaDuke, The Roundtable tackles serious and lighthearted subjects, looking to explore the many facets of the human condition with civility, respect and responsibility.

The show's hallmark is thoughtful interviews with A-list newsmakers, authors, artists, sports figures, actors, and people with interesting stories to tell. Since hitting the airwaves in May of 2001, The Roundtable has interviewed the likes of Arthur Miller, Kurt Vonnegut, Maya Angelou, Madeleine Albright, Jimmy Carter, John McCain, Bob Dole, Bill O'Reilly, Steve Martin, James Taylor, Bill Cosby, Stephen King, Melissa Etheridge and lots of other really cool people. Plus, Wilco does our theme song. What more can you ask for?

The Hyde Collection - Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce

    For over a decade and a half, artist Georgia O’Keeffe would return to Lake George for the summer. She referred to it as “My Summer Place.”

For many families throughout the country, Lake George is their family place. It is a spot where families come year after year and others will discover it for the first time – this year.

Michael Consuelo is the executive director at Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce joins us this morning to discuss the impact this exhibition will have on tourism, what impact tourism will have on this exhibit as well as the overall role the chamber plays in the lure of the “Queen of American Lakes” and the surrounding region.

The Hyde Collection - Charles Guerin, Director

    There is such a thing as perfect timing. Charles Guerin has been director of The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, NY for the past three months. It is a brand new job. But, he has taken the reins as a landmark exhibit is now open and the museum celebrates its 50th Anniversary.

A Chicago native, Guerin served as executive director of the University of Arizona Museum of Art from 2000-2012, where he created and endowed the institution's Archive of Visual Art.

Previously, Guerin was a commissioner of Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources from 1998-2000, and the executive Director of the University of Wyoming Art Museum in Laramie from 1986-2000.

In association with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, the Hyde has organized a first-of-its-kind exhibition that closely examines the extraordinary body of work created by O’Keeffe of and at Lake George. From 1918 until the mid 1930s, O’Keeffe spent part of the year at Alfred Stieglitz’s family estate, a thirty-six acre property situated just north of Lake George village in the southern basin of the lake. The exhibition presents a selection of fifty-eight paintings from both public and private collections.
