Paul Tyler and Friends pay tribute to the pioneers of country radio with their
tribute to the WLS National Barn Dance in Chicago. This now legendary radio show that
began broadcasting in 1924 featured a number of country and old time
music talents and influenced generations of future musicians. Even though the program had
an almost immediate impact on American culture, many of the performers from the first
fifteen years of the Barn Dance have been, for the most part, ignored by country
music historians. Tyler and his friends set out to rectify that oversight.
