Rev. Dr. Ray :

Rev. Dr. Ray

The Rev. Dr. Ray was born and raised in the Tulsa area - out east in the country. As a typical farm kid, he grew up fishing, riding horses, doing chores, etc. The first song he remembers hearing is “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles at about 3 or 4. They were soon his favorite band.

From that point on, he loved listening to the radio. A favorite memory is his dad calling in requests for us to the local radio station. Back then it was “Urban Cowboy” country. As he puts it, "Hey, I was young, and I didn’t know any better!" Not long after, in the early 80s, he fell in love with pop and rock music. The records and tapes began piling up.

Several years ago, The Rev. Dr. Ray had the chance to host a hillbilly radio show. He jumped at the opportunity to take my hobby to the airwaves. He spent 4 great years on the air with that The Hillbilly Happy Hour. It got to be too much of a grind driving and carrying all of the music with him. After a few months off air, he started recording HiFi Heresy in his home studio. "RSU has graciously given me a chance to play the music I truly love: obscure (and not so obscure) rock n’ roll with heavy doses of garage and lofi thrown in. Tune in to the show, and be sure to let me know what you think and what you want to hear!"

Email HiFiHeresy@yahoo.com for requests.

Rockin’ Gary

Gary was a huge fan and friend of Rockin' John Henry. When John died, for several years Gary bemoaned the fact that no one had stepped up to fill the void he left in the Tulsa area music scene. While Rockin' Gary is not out to replace Rockin' John, he is trying to carry on keeping the roots of Rock and Roll alive.

He believes in the words of Rockin' John Henry "Stay with Rock-n-Roll and you'll stay young forever."

I am a lover of all things music or sound. I first fell in love with DJing when I was amazed at the opener for a concert a while back. I then started to make very poorly done mixtapes and now I am a professional DJ for weddings and other events! I finished a course in Sound Engineering at Tulsa Tech and now am attending RSU in hopes to get a degree in Communications.

From the orchestra to the marching band to even recording my own songs in the school studio in high school, I have always found myself around music. Currently I intern for two companies. One of which is a record label and the other RSU Radio. In the midst of this all I also own and run my own record label. Being in love with the grind and music helped me ultimately decide to combine the two and make it my career.

He plays and sings his own style of country blues, developed through the years of writing, recording and performing. "Don White" is a household name among the knowledgeable. J.J. Cale, who helped White start his first band and played guitar in that band, fostered an increased interest in country music because of White. So did other artists who are an integral part of "The Tulsa Sound," an American art form known nationally to serious listeners. Rockin' Jimmy Byfield, Gus Hardin, Ronnie Dunn [of Brooks and Dunn], The Tractors and Debbie Campbell all performed the Tulsa Sound before they performed nationally.

White is a songwriter's songwriter. Rosanne Cash, The Oak Ridge Boys, Suzy Boggus, Razzy Bailey, and Davis Daniel are some of the artists who have recorded White's songs. White is a regularly requested studio musician who has worked with Waylon Jennings, J.J. Cale, Marty Stuart, The Tractors, Jamie Hartfod, Katie Moffit, and Johnny Rodriguez.

He has performed as a solo act and with his own band in concert with Waylon Jennings, J.J. Cale, Dwight Yoakam, Suzy Boggus, Willie Nelson, Don Williams, George Strait, Gus Hardin, Delbert McClinton, Toby Keith, David Allen Coe, Merle Haggard, Ry Cooder and others. One music critic put it this way, "Don White is one of the originators and perpetuators of the Tulsa Sound

I am a Junior with Communications: Radio and TV degree. I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the oldest of five. Both of my parents are born and raised in Mexico and I enjoy listening to music that ranges from Selena and Alejandro Fernandez to the Jones Brothers. My first language is Spanish and while Latin music was always a large part of my life, I would listen to music in English to help better understand my knowledge in the language.

Hi! My name is Maggie and I am a student here at Rogers State. I am majoring in Strategic Communications and minoring in Marketing. Growing up I was so scared to talk to anyone, let alone talk into a mic. Music has been a big reason I broke out of my shell and it also led me to R.S.U Radio. Although I never learned to play an instrument my dream has always been to be involved in music in any way possible. I am excited to expand my knowledge and to be a part of creating the musical experience you have when you tune into 91.3 F.M.

My appreciation for music began back in high school when I spent as many nights as I could going to big concerts and local gigs. Although I had never mastered an instrument, I knew I had to get involved in the indie and alternative music scene. My love for music led me to RSU Radio and helped me decide to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Communications specializing in Radio/ TV. In the meantime, I’ll be going to as many shows as my wallet and schedule will let me.
