Thirty years ago, middle-school student and AIDS patient, Ryan White, was denied an education in Kokomo, Indiana, and what transpired became a saga heard around the world.

This weekend, that story and its message are honored through "The Kid from Kokomo: The Ryan White Story", an original Fort Wayne Youtheatre premiere, written and directed by Gregory Stieber.

WBOI's Julia Meek invited Stieber to share some of his motives and methods for preserving White's legacy.

Going on ninety years old, actor, director, writer and Fort Wayne Youtheatre's artist-in-residence Harvey Cocks is still going strong, as he's been explaining in his fascinating three-part lecture series, "My Life in Theater," at the Wunderkammer Company.

He'll deliver the final installment tonight, but earlier this week, he joined WBOI's Julia Meek at the Madge Rothschild Studios to share a few backstage insights into his long-term love affair with show business.
