When Tim Hagans arrived at Bowling Green State University in 1972 the school didn't have a jazz program.
That didn't mean campus was bereft of jazz activity. Dave Melle led the big bands, and Lou Marini Sr. (whose son Lou Marini Jr. had just joined Blood, Sweat and Tears) taught saxophone and arranging. Percussion professor Wendell Jones made sure top names in jazz made stops in Bowling Green.
His fellow students included future professionals saxophonist Rich Perry, fellow trumpeter Tom Kirkpatrick and bassist Tom Warrington.
"Even though there was no jazz department, we made up our own jazz department," Hagans said.
Jazz Studies now thrives at BGSU, and Hagans is pleased when he gets to come back and share in it. The trumpeter will spend several days on campus starting Monday to work with students. Public events are a master class in Kelly Rehearsal Hall at 6 p.m. Monday and a concert with Jazz Studies director David Bixler's I75 Project Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Bryan Recital Hall.
Hagans came back to campus first in 2006. He appreciated the changes, including the Moore Musical Arts Center, and enjoyed jamming with the jazz faculty. He was pleased as well with what hadn't changed. The Dairy Queen and town's friendly atmosphere. "Bowling Green always had such a positive vibe."

Litany of Laughs: Players ‘Nunsense’ blessed with stellar cast PDF Print E-mail

As unlikely as it may seem to some of us who went to Catholic schools in the 1950s and 1960s, nuns can be loads of fun.
The ever-popular comic revue “Nunsense” has proved that both in its original form, which has gotten some updating by creator Dan Goggin, and later iterations.
The off-beat comedy is a community theater favorite because as one local theater veteran explained you can always find women interested in dressing up as nuns for laughs. The trick is to find the right willing ladies. The Black Swamp Players has cast a stellar quintet of actresses to inhabit the habits of the Little Sisters of Hoboken. That includes the absolute joy of seeing Anne Kidder, as the mother superior, and daughter Melissa Kidder as the sweet dim bulb Sister Amnesia, on stage together. They’re joined by Deb Shaffer, Kimberly Bright  and Mary Anne Buckley.
