Linda Soundtrak

Verin

Linda Verin, aka Linda Soundtrak, known for her wacky onscreen persona and television ads promoting a chain of electronics stores during the 1970s and ’80s, is coming to Tulsa to help raise money for flood victims.

Soundtrak will make an appearance from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at the Swamp House, a new restaurant and music venue at 1529 E. Third St., according to Eric Warren, a Tulsa businessman and relative of Verin.

“If you were around then, you will for sure remember Linda Soundtrak,” Warren said. “Everyone had an opinion about her.”

Verin moved from Oklahoma to Alabama in the early 1990s.

She will meet and greet visitors and accept cash donations for the Tulsa Area Salvation Army flood relief fund, according to Warren.

Other ways to donate to the Salvation Army:

• Mail: The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 1959, Atlanta, GA 30301. Designate “May 2019 OK/AR Storms” on all checks.

• Phone: 1-800-725-2769

• Text: STORM to 51555 to receive a donation link for mobile giving.
