PAT BUTTRAM
Originally from Winston County, Alabama, Pat Buttram joined WLS and the National Barn Dance in 1934.  His dry wit and humor would allow him to spin all sorts of stories about his kin folk from down south. One of his self-appointed duties was to step on stage, snap his suspenders and announce to the audience that "...you can dance in the aisles and tear up the place if you want to - it don't belong to us!"  By 1942 he left WLS to make movies and later appeared on TV with former NBD singer Gene Autry.  When Autry retired in the 50's, Buttram continued on as a nightclub act as well as acting in both movies and TV. Many will remember Pat for his role as "Mr. Haney" on the 60's sit-com Green Acres.

The National Barn Dance, featuring acts such as Patsy Montana, George Goebel, the Arkansas Woodchopper and Mac & Bob aired live from Chicago's Eighth Street Theatre from 1932 to 1957.
