The McNett program reveals its roots

By Staff | Sep 16, 2014


The Montgomery Area Historical Society and the Clinton Township Fire Company partner together to remember The Radio Corral on Sunday afternoon, the 21st of September at 2 o’clock.

Two framed posters from circa 1968-1970, announce the artists Tammy Wynette and Hank Williams, Jr., two of the featured performers who attracted the crowds in a sylvan setting near Montgomery.

The posters were printed by the Adam Print Shop and, for years, have been displayed at the Montgomery Area Public Library. “If you have fond memories of the Radio Corral, or are a fan of country music, you will enjoy the program with Shawn and Tim McNett, sons of Dean and Dorothy McNett, as they entertain at the fire hall,” said Marion McCormick from the Historical Society.

The brothers carry on the tradition of their father, Dean, and their uncle, Bob McNett. The doors will open at noon and food will be available from the fire company. Guests will include Connie Rose, the daughter of Jim and Jane Claar, founders of The Radio Corral in 1948. Dorothy McNett will display items of historical interest, some of which will only be displayed here. Donations will be taken at the door.
