Long DescriptionTown Hall Party was California's largest country music barndance, running from early 1952 until early 1961. The show was broadcast every Saturday night from a theatre made up to look like an old barn in the Compton suburb of Los Angeles. Crowds numbering up to 2000 would fill the old Town Hall to see and hear the top country artists of the day. The first hour was broadcast live over KFI and reached a wider audience when NBC syndicated the show on radio. The broadcast was extended to three hours when KTTV-TV televised the show. Jay Stewart (who later hosted the TV quiz show 'Let's Make a Deal'), and Tex Ritter were the MCs and the house band featured a Who's Who of West Coast country music, including Joe Maphis, Merle Travis, Skeets McDonald, Johnny Bond and Tommy Duncan. This Town Hall Party broadcast on DVD features: Introduction by Jay Stewart / Joe Maphis and the entire cast: Rainin' On The Mountain / Skeets McDonald: What Am I Doing Here / Joe & Rose Lee Maphis: Tell Her Lies And Feed Her Candy / Johnny O'Neill: Wagon Train / Johnny O'Neill, Billy Mize & Cliff Crofford: Tom Dooley / Norma & Linda: Lookin' Back To See / Tex Ritter: The Wayward Wind / Wanda Jackson: Mean Mean Man / Pick Me Up On Your Way Down / Fiddlin' Kate: (Fiddle Instrumental) / Jimmy Pruett: Sweet Georgia Brown / Merle Travis: Way Down Yonder In New Orleans / Billy Mize & Cliff Crofford: Gotta Travel On / Jeannie Sterling: The Day The Rains Came / Bob Luman: Rockin' Robin and much more.

We spent some time to give the site a face lift. We are working on a lot of changes in the background to improve your experience and some user interface changes come with that.

We aren't ready to release all of the background changes or the interface changes but we are ready to release the main cosmetic changes since they don't need the background changes to be ready.

These changes make browsing the site a lot easier on mobile devices and touch devices. We improved scalling and presentation. There are plenty of places left for improvement but we think we are off to a good start.

As always, we are happy to hear your feedback any time.
