Only in OK Show

Howdy Y’all…just kidding! Welcome to our page. We are the Only in Oklahoma Show, where you can hear about travel and entertainment in the Great State of Oklahoma. Our sole purpose is to shine a light on some of the people, places and stories that make Oklahoma, more than just “OK”. In fact, Oklahoma is one of the most underrated travel destinations in the country even by some of the locals. Powered by award winning podcasters (2018 Podcast Award – Society and Culture), Harley C. and Brett Manzer. Tune into the Only in Oklahoma Show to hear interviews, news and reviews about Oklahoma’s best restaurants, hotels, festivals, museums, outdoor activities, breweries, rodeos, concerts, casinos, and more (literally this list is endless). If it’s fun and in Oklahoma, we will be talking about it. We will also be covering some not so topics, like bureaucrats, bridges, toll booths and taxes. If it affects your bottom line or your lake time, we will be cussin’ and discussin’. If you are joining us from the Odd Pod, some things never change. Manzer and Harley will be trying to make you laugh while dropping some knowledge about the places we cover. Don’t worry, we will still be covering the occasional red-dirt ghost story, cryptid, and UFO conspiracy…as long as it is north of the Red River (BOOMER!). Boots and straps and cowboy hats are optional. Welcome to the Only in Oklahoma Show!... Show More

On today's episode of the Only in OK Show, we have a great interview with Lucas Ross, actor, director, comedian and he is in charge of education and promotion at the American Banjo Museum.   Our journey begins with the origin of  Bricktown in Oklahoma City.  Starting off as a commercial hub for the area via the train tracks, Bricktown soon played a role in the civil rights movement in Oklahoma and was home to OKC's first Black News Paper, the "Black Dispatch "   and the original OKC chapter of the NAACP.  The dust bowl, oil busts and economic stagnation ravaged the area for decades.  The transformation of Bricktown started in the 80's and soon ramped up with the introduction of the MAPS Project in the early 90's.  Today Bricktown is an internationally recognized travel destination and the is much more to come.   The American Banjo Museum is a world-class 21,000 square foot facility honoring the banjo.  The collection includes recordings, film, instructional materials, memorabilia and over 400 instruments.  In fact, this is the largest banjo collection in the world on display.  Originally located in Guthrie, Oklahoma, the museum was founded as a non-profit organization in 1998 under its previous name, The National Four-String Banjo Hall of Fame Museum. Lucas shares his love of all things Banjo, including meeting his idol, Steve Martin, and teaching Kermit the Frog to play the banjo.  With events almost daily, there is something for everyone!   Also discussed, Mike Morgan's tie, Lacey Lett with Freedom 43 TV, the OKC Metro Library, the Minco Honey Festival, Rose State Performing Arts Center, The Credit Cowboy, behind the scenes at KFOR TV, Kent Ogle's personal phone number, and the Winstar Casino.   Special thanks to our advertiser: Master Threads     #TravelOK #Oklahoma #Bricktown #OKC #Banjo  #podcast
