THE AMAZING DAVE MAY
He’s known as The Amazing Dave May by Oklahoma audiences who’ve seen his vaudeville-esque ventriloquist and magic road show. He’s known as May Day in the Morning on KLOR 99.3 FM in Ponca City. He’s known as the Executive Director of The Poncan Theatre and he’s known as the man who discovered the world’s largest collection of hand painted movie theater poster art in the world.
Gallery traveled to Ponca City to meet Dave May and spend an entire day with him. He started the day by pumping up listeners in the morning and ended the day rallying 70 child actors before a big performance at The Poncan. He’s a renaissance man with boundless energy and we found out why Ponca City and Oklahomans around the state can’t help but stand up and cheer for The Amazing Dave May.

A WALK THROUGH TIME
It took a century to build, but today it’s a global model and it’s right here in Oklahoma. Join Gallery in June as we take you to the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History in Norman. The facility is state of the art, but the collection is millions of years old, preserved through the last hundred years in barracks, barns and stables. Now it is on display on a grand scale. We’ll see all the museum has to offer not only on exhibit floors but through education outreach and behind the scenes. Come take a Walk Through Time with Gallery in June.
