Cheers to 2023 🥂 To hope, strength and starting anew!
Here's what's In The Moment this week.
Happy New Year! I looked up from my holiday cookie boxes and it’s time to exercise again?! Whether you’re prepared with your resolution lists or still sipping on your eggnog, we want to wish you a happy new year from all of us at Public Radio Tulsa. We’re so glad to start 2023 with you by our side. 

Looking back on the world of music. Tune in to KWGS 89.5 FM this Sunday, Jan. 8 at 6 p.m. as Rhythm Atlas’ host Denis McGilvray celebrates the Best World Music Albums of 2022. You’ll hear a mix of music from a wide variety of fantastic folk, roots and global fusion albums that were released all over the globe in the past year. 

LP covers, art and artists. In the latest installment of Museum Confidential, Jeff Martin and Scott Gregory have a ball chatting about great LP covers rendered by notable artists — along with a handful of tangents, music clips and art-related musings. Listen HERE for an hour of LP cover appreciation, and much, much more. 
Oklahomans on Capitol Hill. As of Wednesday afternoon, Kevin McCarthy has failed to win six rounds of voting for House speaker and one Oklahoma publication claimed that Oklahoma District 4 Rep. Tom Cole may be considered for the position. Meanwhile, Senator Markwayne Mullins speaks out against the nation’s immigration issues at the southern border. Read more HERE

Police traffic stop shooting. Tulsa and Muscogee Nation police shot and killed a man early Saturday morning following a pursuit with gunfire that stemmed from a routine traffic stop. A press release from TPD says that the man didn’t follow police commands as he held a handgun and shotgun. The officers involved are on administrative leave as authorities investigate the shooting. 
Muscogee dam and bridge plan proceeds. Muscogee National Council voted on Wednesday to pass a memorandum of understanding that will allow them to proceed with a project to erect a dam and pedestrian bridge between south Tulsa and Jenks. "The Muscogee (Creek) Nation is always willing to sit down and work with our partners in the cities of Tulsa and Jenks to advance development, growth and prosperity on our Reservation," says Principal Chief David Hill
New year, new me (more or less). I will admit that I am a big New Year’s resolutions gal. I love a time-stamped opportunity to reflect and evaluate my habits and goals, and dream up how I want the year to go. If you’re looking for unique, achievable resolutions, look no further than Life Kit’s Resolution Planner. From staying limber in 2023 to finally sitting down to write your will, you’ll find guides to goals you’ve been wanting to tackle, or new ones you hadn’t yet thought of.

How time shapes how we think about climate change. Our obsession with the present often obscures how we think about the future. We think about today, tomorrow and maybe the next year, but what happens when something (i.e. climate change) looms further in the future? Read HERE about how our perception of time shapes our approach to climate change. 

Honoring Oklahoma's centenarians. All-volunteer organization Centenarians of Oklahoma seeks to recognize and honor the state's "Golden Okies." Volunteers travel around the state to conduct tribute ceremonies, listen to stories and hear words of wisdom. "Keep on breathing," quipped one woman.

A concert to start the year. Start the year with an intimate performance from The Smile, a concert that Bob Boilen, producer of Tiny Desk Concerts, describes as his “musical highlight” of 2022. “We hear the vocals, guitar, bass and drums weaving so perfectly with lyrics that remind us how fragile our lives are and for me how these magical moments can be transcendent,” says Boilen. Watch HERE.

And please...stay safe, friends.
