Grace Gordon has a passion for the Oklahoma music scene that runs as deep as marrow. In 2011, she began working with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office to bring The Buffalo Lounge – a unique Oklahoma music and film showcase – to SXSW.
She remained involved with the Buffalo Lounge for several years, and her growing expertise and relationships with local musicians that happened as a result of her work eventually led to a job as the new co-host of The Oklahoma Rock Show alongside Ryan LaCroix. Gordon joined The Oklahoma Rock Show in March of 2012, when it was hosted solely on TheSpyFM.com. In August of 2012, The Oklahoma Rock Show was integrated into the KOSU family in partnership with The Spy, along with a variety of other curated specialty shows.
Over the years, Gordon and LaCroix have lent their unflagging support to the local music scene, have exclusively premiered myriad albums by local musicians, and have interviewed bands like Colourmusic, Broncho, Skating Polly, and Horse Thief, as well as performers like Jabee, Tyson Meade, and Samantha Crain. Additionally, Gordon lent direct support to artists in Oklahoma City as the venue manager and booking agent of historic uptown venue, The Blue Note, for three years. She has also worked with local artists in a variety of capacities from managing assistance to album production.
In October 2017, Gordon also became the new overnight host of The Spy, with a show called “After Midnight with Grace Gordon” that runs every weeknight from midnight until 5am.
