Barn Dance Favorites

Act fast, supplies are getting mighty low!


Recreates those magical Saturday nights in the Old Hayloft when Chicago, not Nashville, was the capital of Hillbilly Music. A record as warm and crackly as that old tube radio in the attic.

Full Description

On this special, limited-edition CD, the PVC celebrate Chicago's glorious (and largely forgotten) country music history and the 36 years of the WLS National Barn Dance, America's biggest Hillbilly Radio show from 1924 to 1960.

Cosmonauts Jon LangfordTom V. Ray and John Rice enlisted legendary violinist Johnny Frigo (city boy and jazzer who fell in love with Country Music when he joined the Barn Dance in 1948), regular guests Sally Timms and Kelly Hogan,  golden-throated Scott Ligon (NRBQ, The Flat Five) and folks like Rick Sherry (Devil in a Woodpile) and Tracey Dear (Waco Brothers), to recreate those magical Saturday nights.
