A few words about the 'Town Hall Party' ..... The 'Town Hall Party' was California's biggest country music show between early 1952 and early 1961. The event was broadcast every Saturday night from a theater that looked like a converted barn in the middle of Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles. Up to 2000 fans came to the old Town Hall to see and hear the hottest top country musicians. The first hour was always broadcast live by KFI and later reached an even larger audience when NBC broadcast the show on radio. When the TV station KTTV entered the scene, the shows even lasted more than three hours. Jay Stewart (who later hosted the TV quiz show 'Let's Make A Deal') and Tex Ritter hosted the show, and the house band included all of the top names in West Coast country music, including Joe Maphis, Merle Travis, Skeets McDonald, Johnny Bond and Tommy Duncan

Guests included the Collins Kids, Carl Perkins, Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Wanda Jackson and Johnny Cash. The show was such a success that in 1958 Columbia Records released a 'Town Hall Party' album featuring many of the above artists. Unlike previous DVDs, which bundled various performances by individual artists, these new releases present complete shows - and capture even more intensely the atmosphere and excitement that captured the audience almost half a century ago. These releases also include the two shows with Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two as special guests, which were broadcast on November 15, 1958 and August 8, 1959. Bear Family had already brought these shows to the market as a special summary.

However, due to great demand, the two shows are now released completely and in full length as two separate DVDs - with all the other permanent members of the Town Hall party line-up. So let's go back in time, listen to and watch the top performers and simply enjoy these shows, which have not been seen since their original broadcast.

Town Hall Party DVDs

The Town Hall Party was one of the first country music shows to be broadcast on American television in early 1952 and ran until early 1961, coming every Saturday from a theater in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles. The stage was set up like an old barn - this was supposed to convey the same atmosphere that had already prevailed three decades earlier at the live shows that had been broadcast on the radio.

The stage was set up like an old barn

The show - with up to 2000 spectators in the hall - was initially broadcast live on the radio station KFI. However, the spread increased enormously when NBC took over the nationwide broadcast. And when television was switched on with KTTV-TV, the individual shows even lasted up to three hours. The popularity was so great that Columbia Records released the LP'Town Hall Party' in 1958 - with many performers who belonged to the tribe of the show.
