Tito Jackson is a lot of things: an original member of the Motown legends Jackson 5, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, and father of three talented sons. And now there is one more label he can add to that list: Oklahoman. That's right, for the past year Tito Jackson has been living on several acres out in northeast Oklahoma, and Oklahoma Today was fortunate enough to sit down with Jackson at his new residence for a quick Q&A. In the interview, Jackson shares the reason for his new place of residence, including the Jackson family's surprising connection to the Sooner State. He also shares stories from the early days of the Jackson 5 band and talks about what to expect from his upcoming keynote speaking engagement at the Claremore Museum of History's upcoming Juneteenth celebration, set to take place Saturday, June 15. 

Also on this week's episode, the editors share who they think should be the next celebrity to move to Oklahoma, and podvents takes us into dad joke territory. You won't want to miss it!
