What’s Happening Wednesday with the Egg: Daddy, Dave, Plaza, Seniors, Tuna, Huey, Hippie, Chalk

Hola! Hope you’re having a great week. I am. Just feel really together this week. It’s a great feeling to have. The heat is on OKC and for once, I don’t hate it! I embrace it! Last weekend was insanely filled with events. Too bad the Charlie Christian Festival just canceled. I thought that was odd. And when are we going to get over the fact that this city can have more than one event on one weekend? We’ve arrived! We have arrived.

Father’s Day is Sunday. Thanks to MetroFamily Magazine for their wonderful list of things to do on Sunday. It’s posted below.

The featured image I’m using is of me, my sisters Janet and Kathy and my dad from 1968 in a traditional backyard little pool. I’m the baby! A little tribute to my dad, Bob Spears.

Here’s what I have going on this weekend:

It’s the week of the Festival! Red Earth, deadCENTER, Prix de West & Charlie Christian, plus Paseo, Shakespeare, Running, Kenny Wayne Shepherd …

It’s a magical time of year in Oklahoma City! It’s the WEEKEND OF THE FESTIVAL! I mean, there’s just something for EVERYONE! deadCENTER Film Festival starts Wednesday, Red Earth Festival (love the parade & grand entry), the Charlie Christian International Music Festival and the Prix de West start on Friday. Always happy for First Friday Gallery Walk in the Paseo Arts District. A lot of people are talking about the Kenny Wayne Shepherd concert at the Diamond Ballroom, which is a benefit concert for the tornado victims. I’ve included the Jerry Jeff Walker concert at Riverwind on Friday… just reminds me of the days when I lived in Raleigh, North Carolina. My mom and I just loved that Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother song and we were anything but redneck! It was the 70s. We leaned the happy hippie style.

Please enjoy. There is so much to do in this town! Don’t ever get baffled. Let me help you! Let me… tell you where to go!

Be sure to tune into Eggman in the Morning with Shawn Carey on KZLS 99.7FM The True Oldies Channel Wednesdays at 7:30am!

What’s happening Wednesday OKC with the Eggman!

So what a crazy Memorial Day Weekend, huh? Hard to believe June starts on SATURDAY! All these great events benefiting the tornado victims are incredible. The OKChefsRelief raised $40,000 alone! Amazing! And the donations coming in by the millions! Oh and I did NOT get my tickets to the Healing in the Heartland concert. I’m fine with watching it on tv because I just can’t wait to see the performers and the crowd. I’m super pumped. Of course if tickets became available to purchase I would buy them.

Thanks for having me on Eggman & Shawn Carey! Listen every Wednesday morning, 7:30 am on KZLS The True Oldies Channel.
