Bob Wills

We're pleased to welcome our friend John Wooley back to StudioTulsa. A longtime Tulsa-based music and pop-culture writer -- and the host, of course, of the popular Swing on This program, heard every Saturday night here on KWGS -- Wooley is the co-author, along with Brett Bingham, of a new book about the historic Cain's Ballroom.

Radio in Tulsa is rich in history. The legendary Bob Wills broadcast his show and live dances with the Texas Playboys from Cain’s Ballroom every Thursday and Saturday evening over KVOO. The program reached homes across America and soldiers, and fans would write in their song requests and tune in faithfully to listen.
