July 4th Specials on Public Radio Tulsa

Jul 3, 2019

Spend your Fourth of July with Public Radio Tulsa! 

 

Capitol Steps 4th of July edition "Politics Takes A Holiday" 
11:00 a.m. on KWGS Public Radio 89.5 | Listen Live

 

This July 4th, the Capitol Steps answer all of the burning questions! What rhymes with Pete Buttigieg? If Joe Biden and Donald Trump have a Twitter exchange at 3am, how fast can the Capitol Steps write a song about it? And if Vladimir Putin appears shirtless on the radio, does it violate the FCC’s decency standards?

 

American Anthem: The Special
12:00 p.m. on KWGS Public Radio 89.5 | Listen Live

 

Hosted by Elizabeth Blair and Tom Cole from NPR's Arts Desk, American Anthem: The Special will highlight standout stories from NPR's ongoing periodic American Anthem series. The hour will weave together the creation, popularization, and evolution of a selection of songs about our shared national identity as Americans. Songs like "Fight the Power", "This Land is Your Land", "Dixie", and "The Times They Are a Changin'" were all written as a response to a moment or a movement and grew into an anthem.
