The Hayloft Gang

    Narrated by Garrison Keillor, The Hayloft Gang tells the story of a changing America through the lens of one of the nation's most popular country music radio shows during the 1930s and '40s: the National Barn Dance. While relating the stories of The Hayloft Gang's most compelling characters, the film is organized around the key themes of commercialization of local and regional culture; conflict of an old agrarian America challenged by a new, heterogeneous, urban one; and the “search for a usable past."
