Welcome Back, American Banjo Museum

by marif on February 10, 2017

It’s exciting times around here, let me tell you. Things are falling into place like they tend to do—LTYM has taught me to believe in magic, the way that happens. It’s good stuff. Submissions are open until Monday and we’re ready for yours—check out the details here and then come back and help us to welcome back another fantastic LTYM local sponsor!

We are thankful to be carrying on the tradition of Listen To Your Mother for a fifth year, but we know our show wouldn’t be possible without the amazing LTYM family that has grown since the show first came to OKC in 2013. It’s through the support of local businesses that we are able to showcase local voices sharing their personal stories. We are thankful to welcome back sponsors who believe in this show so whole-heartedly, that they not only sponsor us, but they are involved with us.

We are thrilled to welcome back the American Banjo Museum as a local sponsor of the Listen To Your Mother OKC 2017 show! This uniquely Oklahoma museum features the largest collection of banjos on public display in the world and recently announced an exclusive exhibit featuring banjos owned and played by Steve Martin plus memorabilia and rare photos. This family-friendly destination is easy to find in the heart of Bricktown.

by marif on February 9, 2017

Let me take a second here to remind you all—submissions are still open! We’ve received some great stories already and can’t wait to hear yours. Find all the details on how to send in your story here (and hurry; deadline is Monday, February 13).

We are thankful to be carrying on the tradition of Listen To Your Mother for a fifth year, but we know our show wouldn’t be possible without the amazing LTYM family that has grown since the show first came to OKC in 2013.

We are able to produce a quality, lovely show due in part to great sponsors who also believe like we do: Oklahoma has wonderful stories to tell about motherhood. We are thrilled to welcome back sponsors who believe in this show so whole-heartedly, that they not only sponsor us, but they are involved with us.

We are thrilled to welcome back Individual Artists of Oklahoma (IAO) as a local sponsor of the Listen To Your Mother OKC 2017 show! Individual Artists of Oklahoma is a statewide arts organization that exists to promote progressive arts programming and education in the state of Oklahoma.

The 2016 Videos are Live!

July 25, 2016

Wow. Time will fly. Time flies. Time has flown. I can’t believe that it’s been two months since we took to the stage and brought all our blood, sweat, and tears to the Will Rogers Theatre. The audience laughed with us, cried with us, and we did it. We did a thing. And we are all better people for having done it, we all still talk about it in hushed tones— can you believe we did that!? We did do it, and now the proof is on the internet, because the videos from the 2016 season—all 500 of them—are loaded. You can watch the entire LTYM OKC 2016 show, or you can watch each one individually.
