About Mark Hooley

Growing up in northern Indiana, some of my earliest memories are listening to WLS National Barn Dance on the radio. I was too young to understand who or what I was listening to but it sure seemed like they were having a good time! As an adult I had a yearning for more of that good time music and discovered western swing and have been collecting it ever since. Hope you get as much pleasure from this music as I have.

Here are two western swing greats. Around 1949 or so, Hank Penny had a radio program called "Penny Serenade", and one of his special guests was Bob Wills. Here is an interview Hank did with Bob Wills.
