Burkhardt’s Request Roundup - Jan 20, 1950

April 22nd, 2017

 Finally on the blog this week, the next-to-last in a series of programs from a collection of discarded working lacquers originating at WHBC in Canton, Ohio, I’ve been posting over the past few weeks.

“Burkhardt’s Request Roundup” was a country music series sponsored by the Burkhardt Brewing Company of Akron, Ohio.  The first tune is “Roamin’ in Wyoming”  Other songs include “Anticipation Blues” and “A Calico Apron and a Gingham Gown”.  The music is from transcriptions.  Performers include Andy Parker and the Plainsmen, Tennessee Ernie Ford, and T. Texas Tyler.  (They must have subscribed to the Capitol transcription library.)

A listener to the blog helpfully provided this scan of an advertising item from the series - I’d love to credit you for the scan, but I lost your message on Facebook!

Our show was transferred from a single-sided sixteen inch Audiodisc lacquer transcription from WHBC.
