TERRY GROSS, HOST:

The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame announced their 2014 class of inductees Tuesday afternoon.

Included in the list are late singer and guitarist J.J. Cale, blues rock guitarist Elvin Bishop, drummer Jim Keltner, drummer Chuck Blackwell, and late blues guitarist Lowell Fulson.

John Fullbright was inducted as a "Rising Star" earlier this year.

Official ceremonies and a concert honoring the inductees will take place on November 1 at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa.

There are, you could argue, two strands of Eric Clapton fans: those who love his scorching electric solos and groundbreaking fusions of blues and rock, and those who prefer his mellow, unplugged pop songs from later years. The two groups might just find common ground on his latest album.

LOOKatOKC pop music columnist Matt Carney joins host Ryan LaCroix every week to discuss music news and new music releases during All Things Considered on KOSU.

Today, we bring you a new song from Norman band Broncho, a country turn for Christopher Owens, and Georgia Anne Muldrow's debut as a rapper.
