Here is an interesting website from the Cool Tricks And Trinkets
newsletter. Not OKOM, but some interesting interviews and audio from the
early western swing and blues performers. 

Honky Tonks, Hymns & the Blues 
Honky Tonks sprang up in the 1930s around the east Texas oil fields as
places to get loose after a long hard day's work, as described best in
Hank Williams' country hit "Honky Tonkin." Honky Tonks, Hymns and the
Blues is the online partner to NPR's Morning Edition radio program that
features interviews with performers Pam Tillis and Jean Shepard and the
music of Kitty Wells, Hank Thompson and Pam Tillis. 
With the program's Friday highlights of American musical traditions that
are the building blocks of today's popular music, and audio and video
selections from the programs, reference material and links to roots
music radio stations and record labels. Sign up for e-mail updates when
new material is posted.
