Brush Creek Follies

For 14 years, a radio program called the "Brush Creek Follies" held the number-two spot among rural music programs, second only to the "National Barn Dance" on Chicago's WLS. Before the Grand Ole Opry was a hit, radio listeners tuned to KMBC here in Kansas City, to catch their fill of "hillbilly," "cowboy," "rural," or "traditional" ("country and western" wasn't commonly used until the '40s) music.

I didn't know about that, did you? Go listen, and step back in time.
