Watching, reading and learning about Wanda Jackson

We launched another nDepth piece this week. It’s on the famed Rock ‘n’ Roll star Wanda Jackson, who still lives right here in Oklahoma City.

OK … full disclosure time: I had never heard of Wanda Jackson until earlier this year when news came out about her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

OK … second moment of full disclosure: I wasn’t really all that fired up about the upcoming feature on Wanda Jackson. I was certain it would be a good story, but I didn’t think I would be all that interested.

Then I saw the full story, the long video and the accompanying text.

I was, all at once, interested, educated and informed about her impact and her legacy.

Interested … educationed … informed. That’s a great accomplishment for an nDepth feature. And it’s something you should check out when you have a chance to sit and learn about an Oklahoman who made a huge impact on the early stages of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
