This week on ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore

  • Are holiday cards just a relic of times gone by, and in serious need of re-invention? Mark McLemore talks with David Dickerson, a former professional greeting card writer, about his suggestions for a new generation of cards that more accurately express the way that many of us feel during the holiday season, as well as how to generate the perfect sentiment for any "greeting card emergency."

  • Producer, director, and all-around movie-maker Roger Corman earned the title of “King of the B-Movies” during his 6-decade career, which was acknowledged with a lifetime achievement award presented by Tucson's Loft Cinema in November. In an exclusive interview, Mark McLemore talks with Roger Corman about some of the thousands of films that he has been a part of making, from stories about crab monsters and teenage cavemen to aliens conquering the world.

  • Plus Teachers' Voices, and a new film essay from reviewer Chris Dashiell.

ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT is heard every Friday at 8:30 am and 6:00 pm, and every Saturday at 5:00 pm, on NPR 89.1 FM / 1550 AM. Stories are also available online at AZPM.org.
