The Oklahoma Rock Show is a two-hour local Oklahoma specialty radio show, airing on KOSU (91.7 in OKC, 107.5 in Tulsa & 88.3 in Stillwater) and online on The Spy, every Thursday at 7pm.
Since its launch on January 7, 2010, Oklahoma Rock Show has hosted dozens of live performances and played hundreds of songs by Oklahoma musicians.
Ryan LaCroix contacted Ferris O’Brien about starting an Oklahoma radio show in November 2009, when it was announced that O’Brien was bringing The Spy back to the airwaves on 105.3 FM. Lacey Lett, former host of KHBZ’s Buzz Born & Bred, joined as co-host.
Meant to be the radio arm of OklahomaRock.com, LaCroix, Lett and O’Brien bounced around terrible show names like OklahomaRock.com Radio, Okies Only and Local Spy, before settling on the not-as-terrible name, The Oklahoma Rock Show.
In late 2011, Lett moved to Tulsa to become co-host of FOX23’s “Good Day Green Country”. LaCroix stayed as sole host until Grace Gordon started guest hosting in early 2012 to promote The Buffalo Lounge at SXSW. After SXSW, Gordon was asked to officially join the show as co-host.
