Becoming Kareem: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with Roy Firestone

September 08, 2018


Description
One of the most recognizable sports personalities in the world takes center stage in Oshkosh, when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar appears live at the Menominee Nation Arena in Downtown Oshkosh.

The multi-media presentation will feature photographs, film clips, and music that both set up the time period and, in an entertaining way, demonstrate the lessons involved. This event will be hosted by Roy Firestone, seven-time Emmy Award-winning and seven-time cable ACE Award-winning host, interviewer, narrator, writer, and producer.

The Endurance

September 11, 2018


Description
Rochelle Pennington tells the story of the epic adventure of Sir Ernest Shackleton's "Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition," a true account of human strife and triumph. The crew of twenty-eight sailors and scientists on board the ship set sail in 1914, southward bound, to conquer one of the few remaining explorative feats which had not yet been accomplished by others before them: a complete on-foot crossing of the Antarctic continent. But before reaching land, their ship became trapped in the rapidly forming ice 100 miles off the coast. The crew, stranded 11,000 miles from home, waited for the spring thaw through nine long months of blizzards, gales, and temperatures nearing 100 degrees below zero. The men then watched in horror as their ship succumbed to the pressure of the frozen ocean, breaking to rubble and sinking before the waters around it had a chance to melt. The crew's only hope for survival was to attempt an escape across the most treacherous waters on the face of the globe in three salvaged lifeboats. This event is sponsored by the Winnebago County Historical and Archaeological Society.

Description
Presented by ACG If you ever had any doubt about where Steve Earle’s musical roots are planted, his new collection, So You Wannabe an Outlaw, makes it perfectly plain. “There’s nothing ‘retro’ about this record,” he states, “I’m just acknowledging where I’m coming from.” So You Wannabe an Outlaw is the first recording he has made in Austin, Texas. Earle has lived in New York City for the past decade but he acknowledges, “Look, I’m always gonna be a Texan, no matter what I do. And I’m always going to be somebody who learned their craft in Nashville. It’s who I am.” In the 1970s, artists such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Paycheck, Billy Joe Shaver and Tompall Glaser gave country music a rock edge, some raw grit and a rebel attitude. People called what these artists created “outlaw music.” Steve Earle’s 2017 collection, So You Wannabe an Outlaw, is an homage to outlaw music. “I was out to unapologetically ‘channel’ Waylon as best as I could.” says Earle. “This record was all about me on the back pick-up of a Fender Telecaster on an entire record for the first time in my life. The singing part of it is a little different. I certainly don’t sound like Waylon Jennings.”
