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.
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 Langford, Tom 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 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.
