For all practical purposes, Summer is over here in Tulsa. Once most of the kids are back in school, it just seems to be the unofficial end of that Summer-like feel. Not to worry though, whether it's Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring, Tulsas music will be here for you and the rest of the world. This weeks show has a theme of sorts: Acoustic Tulsa, that says it all. We feature acoustic versions that some of our heroes (and sheroes) usually play "electrified", if you will. Davit Souders and Dustin Parkhurst give you the best, no strings attached, well actually, the strings are attached. It sounds much better that way. Listen for yourself. Everyone needs hometown heroes and T-Town has some of the best.
