Swing On This

Saturdays at 7pm
  • Hosted by John Wooley

Swing on This is a western-swing radio program, airing at 7 p.m. on public-radio station KWGS (89.5 FM) in Tulsa. With John Wooley as host, he uses a dedicated approach to present a consistant sound in the songs he choses in the hour.

Public radio is a beautiful thing.  It connects with the sights and sounds and people from around the world, it fills our cars and homes and sprits with music, it connects us with our community, and it can even be a reminder of home. 

One day last week, John Wooley, producer and host of Swing on Thisforwarded the Public Radio Tulsa staff an email from a listener who was travelling down the Amazon! The Amazon, how cool, is this?!
