Barn Dance Favorites

Act fast, supplies are getting mighty low!

Limited-edition CD of 1,500 numbered and signed by Jon Langford

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

A nostalgic homage to a time when Chicago was the unlikely capital of country music. Starting in 1924, the National Barn Dance hit the airwaves and became the most popular music show in the nation thanks to WLS and its 50,000 watts of broadcasting power.

On this special, limited-edition CD (1,500 numbered and signed by Jon Langford), 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 Ricehave enlisted legendary violinist Johnny Frigo (city boy and jazzer who fell in love with Country Music when he joined the Barn Dance in 1948), plus regular guests Sally Timms and Kelly Hogan, as well as gold-throated new-boy Scott Ligon, to recreate 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.
