Bob Wills’ Boxed Set of 1940s Radio Shows Due in January

A series of syndicated radio programs recorded by Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys will be released in a 10-CD boxed set on Jan. 27 by Collectors’ Choice Music. The remastered 150-song collection, titled The Tiffany Transcriptions and recorded in 1946 and 1947, mixes well-known songs (“New San Antonio Rose,” “Faded Love,” “Take Me Back to Tulsa”) with covers of popular songs from that era. Known as the King of Western Swing, Wills was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1968.
