4/19: Ten-year anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing

WUBE, Cincinnati's Bill Wyte and Amanda Orlando are looking for the custom mix that country radio played in 1996 of Garth Brooks' "The Change" in commemoration of the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing. writes: Amanda remembers a Garth song with audio clips produced for the OKC bombing. Do you have that…or anything like that on file? If so…could you shoot it to us in time for tomorrow’s show? (Tue)

From Google: Where is the home of Garth Brooks?
Q: I've heard of a statue that shows Christ weeping. Can you tell me where this is?
A: St. Joseph's Old Cathedral Church in downtown Oklahoma City erected this statue as a result of the Oklahoma City bombing that occurred in 1995. The church is located at 307 NW 4th Street, just south of the Oklahoma City National Memorial. You will find the statue of Christ weeping behind their church, which is open to the public 24 hours a day.

Garth Brooks' 1996 single "The Change," remembering those who died in the Oklahoma City bombing in April 1995, but the song also addresses how this world has changed. Brooks said his tour was in Miami on April 19, and he and his wife at the time (Sandy) held hands at 10:02 a.m. eastern time, which meant it was 9:02 a.m. in Oklahoma, and said a prayer. "We didn't get the honor to be in Oklahoma on that day," he said. "But we sent a message -- they will not be forgotten."

If you have any audio that might be helpful, please let me know.
