“The Colors Of Oklahoma Music” by John Wooley

John Wooley, long-time music writer for the Tulsa World, and the only writer to have been inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall Of Fame, has just come out with a new book, entitled “The Colors Of Oklahoma Music —from the Blue Devils to Red Dirt”. In the interest of full disclosure, we must confess that he is a fellow deejay on KWGS, Tulsa’s National Public Radio Affilliate. Now, on with the unabashed plug!

The Colors Of Oklahoma Music, commissioned by the Oklahoma Arts Institute, is a sweeping history of the major musical trends and genres that have come out of Oklahoma to the world. I know that sounds grandiose, but read it. You may be surprised. It is an authoritative, useful reference work for anyone interested in the history of America’s popular music forms. It’s also a helluva fun, entertaining read. Buy it! –Rich
