“Live from Cain’s” is a nonprofit endeavor that combines live music with thought-provoking and entertaining conversations to create a new radio show concept originating from Tulsa’s Cain’s Ballroom for a national public radio audience.

On May 29, a live-to-tape production of a pilot episode was recorded in front of a live audience. The evening featured music and conversation with host Robbie Fulks, musical guest Bonnie Bishop, Bob Dylan guitarist Kevin Odegard and the “Live From Cain’s” House Band: Paul Benjaman & the Oklahoma Specials (Paul, John Fullbright, Travis Linville, Roger Ray, Paddy Ryan, Jeremy Watkins, Jennifer Marriott and Wanda Watson). This pilot will be packaged with an additional seven episodes to be recorded in 2020. The series will be offered to public radio stations nationwide as the next step toward an eventual 26-episode season of broadcasts in 2021-2022.

It’s also a great platform to showcase not only national talent, but Oklahoma talent, as well, and to highlight Tulsa as a premier destination for music, tourism and culture. We recently received some really great news about the future of the show, and we’re looking forward to celebrating that with our friends and supporters.”
