Oklahoma legend Bob Wills finally gets his cinematic due thanks to OKPOP.
Features Louis Fowler
Chuck Berry. Little Richard. Elvis Presley. These are usually the first names that come to mind when rattling off who the originators of rock and roll were. Sadly, only to those in the know, the name Bob Wills — the King of Western Swing — very rarely makes the list. But if Tulsa’s Oklahoma Museum of Pop Culture (OKPOP) has its way, it could rewrite the pop music history books forever.
Commentary Mark Costello
Nearly 20 years ago, a 17-year-old approached me looking for a job. I
offered him a minimum-wage job, thinking I was doing him a favor. Before
his 22nd birthday, he was the president of my company’s office in
England with 50 people reporting to him. Before his 26th birthday, he
was a millionaire.
