Going on 54 years, the SWOSU Jazz Festival has made a tradition out of bringing top musical talent and the area's top bands to Weatherford February 15 and 16. Music professor Dr. Richard Tirk is the festival's current organizer and he joins the show to talk about this year's event. Acclaimed trumpeter Terell Stafford is this year's featured musical guest. Dr. Tirk talks about Stafford, the annual battle of the bands, and the two days of musical events in Weatherford.

Also this week, the editors discuss some of their favorite live music destinations in the state, and podvents sing off the page. We hope you enjoy!
