A Very OK Podcast LIVE: The Bob Wills Story

Monday, March 6, at 6 p.m.
A live recording of A Very OK Podcast will take place on Monday, March 6, starting at 6 p.m. at Ponyboy in Oklahoma City. A panel discussion will focus on the life of Bob Wills, the “King of Western Swing.” March 6 is also Bob Wills Day at the Oklahoma State Capitol.

The podcast is hosted by Oklahoma Historical Society (OHS) Executive Director Trait Thompson and former OHS Executive Director Dr. Bob Blackburn. The podcast explores the interesting stories and fascinating personalities that makeup Oklahoma’s unique history. Thompson and Blackburn will be joined by Jeff Moore, director of OKPOP; Carolyn Wills, Bob Wills’ daughter; and authors Brett Bingham and John Wooley.

Ponyboy is located at 423 NW 23rd Street in Oklahoma City.

This project was supported in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Oklahoma and the National Endowment for the Arts. 

History OffCenter is a series from the OHS focused on immersive, engaging experiences. With an emphasis on community outreach, this series features programs that are in-depth explorations of neighborhoods, the inner workings of the OHS and historical eras. The goal is not only to share our history at the Oklahoma History Center (home of the OHS), but also to reach out to our community.
