__We intend to focus on local issues, news, music and cultural events (and we have a wealth of talent in our Fair Trade Town and home of the University of Oklahoma.)
__Greg Johnson at The Blue Door will do a Music & Politics hour for us, in addition to the hour he already does for NPR's KOSU in Stillwater.
