Fletcher Powell

Production Manager and All Things Considered Host

If Fletcher Powell could be someone else, he’d be Errol Morris or Ira Glass. Except younger and better looking.

Since he can’t, he’ll be Fletcher Powell, KMUW Production Manager and host of All Things Considered. Fletcher came to KMUW in 2009 after five years of working in the stock market (don’t ask). He feels like this line of work fits him a little better than that one did.

Fletcher has a BA in Psychology from the University of Kansas and an MA in Communication from Wichita State University. He’s lived in Wichita most of his life, aside from some brief stops in Iowa and Ohio. He likes baseball, guinea pigs, and the Oxford comma.

Wichita is a city with people from many cultures and backgrounds. A jigsaw puzzle made up of colorful and interlocking pieces. But how much do we really know about the people that live here?

Mohan Kambampati was born in a suburb of Chennai (formerly Madras), Tamil Nadu, India. Here, he talks about meeting his wife, Lakshmi, moving his family to the United States in 1985, and becoming director of the Wichita Indochinese Center:

Wichita State University

This past weekend, a memorial service was held for former Wichita State University professor Robert Town, who died in December. Town was professor of organ at the university from 1965 - 2006 and played a major part in the university's acquisition of the great Marcussen organ, which is housed in Wiedemann Hall and was the first such organ built in North America.

The voice you'll hear in this remembrance is Andrew Trechak, associate professor of piano at Wichita State, who arrived at WSU in 1981. The music is from a May 1990 concert by Town, playing the Marcussen organ.
