On the Air

Album Cover: On the Air“And now for something completely different.” One part early country music, one part Bluegrass and one part vaudeville, the Shivers are George Burns and Gracie Allen gone country. But not the country of today, rather they have gone back to a time when the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, the Delmore Brothers and Charlie Poole trod the boards with Will Rodgers and Uncle Dave Macon and comedy was a big part of the show.

The Shivers bring variety musical comedy back to the stage. Those folks who can remember Jack Benny and Fred Allen, The Bickersons and Abbott and Costello, and, Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, will recognize it at once. But the genuine humanness of this old fashioned comedy has a broader appeal, and reaches younger audiences as well.

On the Air -- Old Time Country Music and Comedy Radio Hour

On the Air is a complete radio program, from the moment the announcer says, “Good evening ladies and gentlemen,” to the closing moments of the theme song, “Are You From Dixie”. Set in “Honeyville, the little village that time forgot,” the commercials, sketches, and songs introduce the audience to the imaginary family and townsfolk, and the comedy and music of their lives.
