Candelon Burns stopped by to talk about the February edition of the KLBC Buzz.
Notes from Regina Phillips, Editor, The KLBC Buzz:
Miranda Lambert called us when she came to Durant in December for a concert at Choctaw Coliseum. She just released a new single — the title track to her 2007 album, “Gunpowder and Lead.” Miranda wrote that song and all but a few on this CD and her debut album. She talked to The Buzz about being taken seriously as an artist and why she actually didn’t want to win “Nashville Star.” The small-town Texan also mentioned the spread she recently bought in southern Oklahoma and the animals that watch her place while she’s on the road.
Of course it’s February, and little chubby Cupid could not be denied. We asked some local people about their most unusual Valentine experiences. Some stories were extraordinary in their sweetness and creating a lasting impression. Others certainly had a bitter taste in their mouths regarding the day. Some talked about how past gifts were easily remembered because they’re the same every year!
We also had the opportunity to speak with a set of twins separated as infants when adopted by different families. Marty Schein of Durant, who adopted one of these girls, moved his family from New York to Oklahoma. Stacy Elyse Schein was 11 then. She was 35 when she found out about her identical twin and the case study started at the adoption agency with five sets of twins and one set of triplets. Elyse and twin Paula Bernstein wrote a book published in 2007, “Identical Strangers: A Memoir of Twins Separated and Reunited.” The women chatted with with The Buzz about the difficulty of transitioning stages and their fight to unlock information about the twin study. Elyse also spoke about what it was like to be transplanted to the Sooner State.
In his third year as play-by-play voice of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Followill took the time to speak with The Buzz about his steady rise to the position as an NBA announcer, and shares some thoughts about the league and players.
