Melody Round Up 1947

Melody Roundup was an interesting show, but almost for accidental reasons.  The network would get recordings of local and network shows from all over the country and repackage them.  Most have heard of the Grand Old Opry but most cities had similar shows.  AFRS would take a 15 minute clip from a random show and viola "Melody Round Up".

This is from roughly 1947 and the "Hollywood Barndance" with Cottonseed Clark.
