Best Of Access Utah On Music And More With Craig Jessop

Paul Fraughton | The Salt Lake Tribune

Today on the final day of UPR’s Spring Pledge Drive, my Access Utah co-host is Craig Jessop, Dean of the USU Caine College of the Arts, and Music Director of the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra. We’ll present a portion of a recent interview with eminent historian Joseph Ellis, author most recently of “American Dialogue: The Founders and Us.” We’ll also hear a segment from an interview with ecologist Jeremy Jackson, co-author of “Breakpoint: Reckoning with America’s Environmental Crises.” And we’ll hear part of Lee Austin’s interview with Mick Fleetwood from Fleetwood Mac.





Tom Williams worked as a part-time UPR announcer for a few years and joined Utah Public Radio full-time in 1996. He is a proud graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal and Utah State University (B. A. in Liberal Arts and Master of Business Administration.) He grew up in a family that regularly discussed everything from opera to religion to politics. He is interested in just about everything and loves to engage people in conversation, so you could say he has found the perfect job as host “Access Utah.” He and his wife Becky, live in Logan.
