Male Announcer: This week’s Oklahoma Moment is brought to you by the Oklahoma History Center.

Historian: Oklahoma has a rich heritage in music and culture. One very special place was called Deep Deuce, Second Street, in Oklahoma City.

Second Street at that time was where it was all going on. It was the business district by day, and at night it was the cultural experience.

But, of course, Charlie Christian is perhaps the most outstanding one because he brought to the jazz world the unique guitar playing.

Well, I actually sat in with a jam session with Charlie, once, up in Ruby’s Grill.

That’s where Jimmy Rushing was born. That’s where Ralph Ellison grew up. Great people came out of Second Street.
