About The Group
Around 1945 or so, Reggie Cross (of the old Hoosier Sodbusters fame) was leading a new group called the Harmoneers on WLS. They had a weekly Saturday show called "Man On The Farm" and were also heard other times, including the WLS National Barn Dance.
During the war, it was noted that they "...did some weird repairing of old broken-down harmonicas" when they couldn't find new ones. And listeners also sent in hundreds of harmonicas, and they forwarded them on to the servicemen.
They used a variet of harmonics from as small as "watch charms" to as big as "stove wood" and the music came out under the direction of Reggie Cross.
