Well I don't know when you was born but there was a very well received radio station in Chicago during the 30s and 40s that hosted a Country music show..I could sometimes tune it in..
Matter of fact I won an amateur contest that had some of the Chicago stars as the main attraction..
I think that might have been called the Chicago Barn Dance..Don't remember for sure..Might have been the Mid West Hayride..
