"Are there any recordings of the show on WGN where they moved in 1960"?
I worked on processing 30+ open reel tapes of the WGN Barn Dance at the Country Music Hall of Fame last year. The tapes run from 1964 to 1968 and had been made by one of the show's engineers for Dolph Hewitt. There is some really wonderful stuff on those recordings!
