11 SEPTEMBER 2021

This week on SWING ON THIS, the multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and
composer Shelby Eicher drops by Studio D, where we play a couple of songs from the Tulsa Playboy CD and he gives us some nice backstory.

Other attractions this time around include a return of the Sweet Violet Boys with a “blue” tune from the ’30s that’s NOT “There’s A Man That Comes to Our House”; Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys doing a great Cindy Walker tune that wasn’t released until more than 40 years after it was recorded; and a Billy May big-band Hamill Time entry that features some pretty amazing steel guitar from Speedy West.

That and plenty more Saturday night at 7 p.m. on Tulsa radio station KWGS, 89.5 FM, and live-streaming everywhere at publicradiotulsa.org
