Introducing "Tune In Texarkana"

Introducing "Tune In Texarkana"

Here's a taste of "Tune In Texarkana," a new podcast from the Gazette's Starbear Studio focused on local musicians. From Episode 1, BIG$ NovaGawd performs "You Vogue, I Meditate." The podcast's monthly episodes will feature host Erin DeBlanc interviewing artists across the spectrum of the Texarkana music scene, and each will include performances recorded live. "My vision for the podcast is to be able to give local artists a platform to share their music with a large audience. There are many talented musicians in Texarkana that many of us are unaware of, and having this podcast, thanks to the Texarkana Gazette, enables them to share their creativity and hard work with more people than they would entertain at a local venue," DeBlanc said. To listen to "Tune In Texarkana," search for and follow the show on your favorite podcast app. You can also listen at tuneintxk.castos.com or texarkanagazette.com/podcast. ...

Catt Dahman, horror filmmaker and author

Texarkana native Catt Dahman is a creative force of nature, with more than 60 novels to her name. She works mostly in the horror genre, and that passion has led her to a new endeavor: movies. In the tradition of filmmakers such as Roger Corman and our own Charles B. Pierce, Catt is busy writing, producing and directing horror movies that have much bigger stories than budgets. The latest is a modern, fictional take on Texarkana's Phantom Killer called “Sundown.” She and host Karl Richter talked about the movie, her path to becoming a director and her other endeavors, including advocating for prison reform.
