60 Years of Two Oklahoma Originals

1956 was quite a year!

Elvis Presley released his first hit, Heartbreak Hotel, the Cuban Revolution was getting ramped up, the average home cost only $11,000.00, and back here in Oklahoma two local icons were born.

60 Years of Public Television

This year, Oklahoma’s only PBS station celebrates 60 years on the air. From humble beginnings in a basement classroom, OETA has grown into an Oklahoma treasure and the most-watched statewide PBS station in the country. To celebrate 60 years of public television, OETA is throwing a 60th Anniversary Celebration, Thursday, October 20 at 6:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club.

The evening will dazzle with appearances by many of PBS’s brightest producers and stars plus a live musical performance by Atlantic Records Recording Artist Straight No Chaser.

60 Years of Holiday Charm

2016 also marks the 60th Anniversary of the BC Clark Anniversary Sale Jingle. What started as a simple jingle to advertise a sale has turned into perhaps the most recognizable song in the state. To celebrate this momentum occasion, BC Clark has commissioned Reed and Barton to create a beautiful 60th Anniversary Jingle Musical Snow Globe.

With the timeless craftsmanship of our commemorative Jingle Snow Globe, you can celebrate this Christmas tradition for years to come – whether you’re in Oklahoma or on the other side of the world.

These exclusive snow globes are only available for a limited time, so head over to bcclarkjingle.com to order one for yourself, and maybe one or two more for your loved ones!
