Willis Conover, program pilot for Ballantine Ale

The pilot combines elements of WEAM's "House of Sounds" and a late-night program at that station. The tape had been previously used, and may have come from WEAM, which was a country music station at the time; remnants of a country music show or pilot follow Conover's material, and include a performance by the Bluegrass Valley Boys.
