|Midwest Ballroom is a two-hour program hosted by local author John Russell (Ghrist) that mostly features local big bands and orchestras. These are the musical groups that are keeping the big band era alive in the Chicagoland area. Recordings by territory orchestras and vocalists are also included on the program. Each show includes interviews with local musicians, "The Big Band Bulletin Board," "The History Lesson," and "The Garage Sale Record of the Week," which highlight the musical accomplishments of many national entertainers. The program also promotes the appearances of local bands, groups and singers from the area.|
