After 75 years, Pioneertown's very first public radio station has finally arrived!
Long before The Beverly Hillbillies left their mark on Southern California, there was already an abundance of good ol' hillbilly music here on the Hollywood Barn Dance!
This half-hour country music variety shows ran from 1943 to 1948 and was created and hosted by Cottonseed Clark.
Charlie Linvalle, Carolina Cotton, Kirby Grant, Johnny Bond and The Riders of the Purple Sage were all regulars on the program.
Guest appearances on the Hollywood Barn Dance included Maureen O'Connor, Clem Smith, Ken Curtis, Andy Parker along with the Plainsmen, Bob Hope and Roy Rogers.
