Bill Middleton
and his Farm and Home Hour Gang

About The Artist

We found out about Bill Middleton and His Farm and Home Hour Gang from an old undated scrapbook clipping of someone who apparently lived in the Illinois / Wisconsin area and would clip things from local newspapers and Prairie Farmer publications. This group was appearing on WDWS, which appears to be out of Champaign, Illinois. The show was heard over WDWS at 6:30am on a daily basis except for Sunday. They said part of the group appeared on the show the first half of the week, and the others during the latter half of the week.
