Eddie Arnold was a good yodeler, as is "Ranger Doug" of "Riders in the Sky" fame.
Eureka! I found it! The Black Brick was located at NW 27th & McKinley and (in 1961)owned by Janey Crain and her husband Bob, Very close to the Blue Door.http://www.okctalk.com/members/jmgra...ney-crain.html
Clipping about the Black Brick January 1961 in an article about Beatniks. Now we wonder about the Gourd, 53 Broadway Circle, and the Buddhi at 9th & Broadway.

I have thoroughly enjoyed and have been amused at all the postings on this site----I have been reminiscing on all the places mentioned---Bixlers, Cherry's, Hollies, Dennis Donuts, Crystals, Shotgun Sams, Shakey's Pizza Parlor, Sugar Shack, Carps, Kaisers and all the many other places. I am not too familiar with the areas other than the North part of OKC---I did a juvenile program and was required to go to Mulligan Flats and was so appalled at the area and felt ashamed of all the material items I had and worried about those who lived there and also in the Flats area also. Being so young, they were rather reluctant to allow me to work in that area---but I wanted to---until I saw how it was at that time. I also worked for many years for Curtis Photography on Classen Blvd and then returned and completed my degree at Central State Collge in Edmond. . Those of you who have posted are quite a group and I have really enjoyed and have been amused with you all. You all are quite a group!!! I do want to ask if any of you all can remember a restaurant where you ordered at the table with a phone and there were little juke boxes on the table also. Seems as if it was on Lincoln??? I know it wasn't the Across the Street Restaurant for certain. Could anyone be of help??? Thanks and I look forward to reading more posts---it has been like a time machine warp!!!!
Can't recall the restaurant you are asking about. There were many that had the telephones at the booths and many that had juke boxes at the booths but I can't recall any that had both.
phones or not. Susy's is how Jake Samara, the real owner of Sussy's, spelled
on the first sign. Jake owned the Tempo Club. He was so tight he wouldn't
buy a new sign and had the painter cover it with, "Susy's". That's what Jake
told me. I have a copy of a check he wrote to me. It said, "The King's Club"
and Susy's Restaurant. I think he owned about every dive tavern in OKC.
Yes, Jake was one of the Samara brothers.
A raging Lightning Creek. Almost like today. Back a few years ago this rainfall would have equaled FLOOD!!!
I think Ann's Chicken Fry had them at one point. I vaguely remember them at some other places.
The only place that I definitely remember having them was Campisi's/Egyptian Restaurant in Dallas.
