Join Public Radio Tulsa, The Canebrake and Swing on This host, John Wooley, for an evening of music in historic Cain's Ballroom. On Saturday night, October 13, Wooley welcomes The Tulsa Playboys and special guest, Cowbop, for two hours of western swing music, dancing and a special edition of Swing on This, going out over the air on Public Radio Tulsa KWGS 89.5-1.

In celebration of the 100th birthday of western swing great, Johnnie Lee Wills, the evening is open to the public and runs from 7 to 9 p.m. The dance floor will be open and the music will ring out across Cain’s Ballroom during this live broadcast just as it did in six day a week radio broadcasts from 1942 through 1958.
