Written and produced by Alan Lomax. A mixture of nine songs, influencing folk, blues, gospel, and jazz simulated, as Faulk states, “forty-eight states doing a musical jamboree.” “Raise a Ruckus Tonight” was the theme song with Woody adding a square-dance verse when they ended it as the opening song.

New York City, CBS Radio Forecast Series #10 - This series was an attempt to “try out new radio ideas”. Each program was an introduction to a proposed new radio series.
