The Two Wheel Oklahoma series will be shown on Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA) stations beginning in April 2010. The travel show first aired on local Tulsa television in October 2009.
Two Wheel Oklahoma features Brad Mathison and Rex Brown as they travel the scenic highways in and around Oklahoma in search of unusual roadside attractions, historical sites, unique eateries and forgotten landmarks.
Each episode features a different destination or stretch of highway, all seen from the perspective of the two hosts aboard their motorcycles. Interviews with interesting characters encountered along the route are an integral part of each episode, and everything is treated in a documentary style. Rex and Brad add commentary through video diaries to share more details about the particular destination they have visited, or people they have met.
“The idea for the show originated from our own motorcycle excursions,” Mathison explained. “It started out as simply documenting our journeys for friends and family.”
There are four episodes so far, with plans for more in the Spring 2010. A few of the destinations so far include the Rock Cafe, the Round Barn, Spavinaw, historic Fort Gibson and Woolaroc.
Co-host Rex Brown said, “The greatest compliments we receive are from people who tell us they watched our show and then went out for a drive. That’s a really great feeling to know you inspired someone to get out and enjoy our state.”
