The moment the StoryCorporals arrived in Lawton, Oklahoma, the KCCU leadership and local media were on hand to record the ceremonial application of the local radio station’s KCCU sticker to the booth. We were pleasantly suprised by the early welcome, but perhaps it makes sense, given that StoryCorps is now in…The Sooner State.

That night, the booth stood majestically at attention underneath the midnight blue sky as it awaited opening day.

Taking a cue from the lead song in the play Oklahoma! (which also became the state song in 1953), what else can we say, but Oklahoma O.K.
