Grand Finale at Country Heritage Park, Milton (Oct 2001)

The Barn Dance Master of Ceremonies, Jim Swan, has a special way of opening the Barn Dance shows to link them back to the style of the original Barn Dance live broadcasts. (Click here to see a video of the opening of the show pictured above)

 

Aims & Objectives of the Society:
  • To preserve the memory of the builders, the musicians and entertainers who were featured over the years on the CKNX Barn Dance, and on the radio and TV shows -- Serenade Ranch, Western Roundup, Circle 8 Ranch, Good Time Country and others, which were broadcast from the CKNX facilities over the years.
  • To preserve the memory of the builders, other musicians and entertainers who performed in southwestern Ontario in years past.
  • To establish and maintain a museum for the display of photos, artifacts and memorabilia relating to the builders, the musicians and entertainers from this area.
  • To support, in any possible way, new musical and entertainment talents in the area, particularly in the country music field.
