The 15th annual deadCENTER Film Festival kicked off yesterday and lasts through Sunday. One film making its world premiere at deadCENTER.

That’s the sound from the cabin of an airplane descending into Barrow, Alaska. On board are two Oklahoma filmmakers—Beau Jennings and Bradley Beesley—heading to shoot footage for a documentary that retraces the footsteps of “Oklahoma's Favorite Son” Will Rogers.

Two Oklahomans, that is, flying into Alaska to shoot a scene on the fateful 1935 plane crash of two other Okies—Will Rogers and Wiley Post.

"We made a number of jokes about a couple of Okies flying back to Barrow, Alaska and wondered how smart we were to do so."

Welcome to Sample Size, where KOSU's Ryan LaCroix and LOOKatOKC pop music columnist Matt Carney team up each week to discuss music news and new music releases.

Today, we look at music from three Oklahoma acts—a concept album from Beau Jennings, a slight shift in sound for Other Lives, and a strong new album from JD McPherson.
