Acaville Partners with BHS to Bring You MORE Barbershop

Here at Acaville, we love all styles of a cappella. Throughout each day we play a mix of contemporary, jazz, comedy, classical, and barbershop to make sure our all-vocal music fans get a great mix of a cappella.

This year, we’ve made a commitment to expand our library – especially in barbershop – so, it’s with great pleasure and excitement that we announce that we are working with Barbershop Harmony Society to bring you some of the best barbershop music EVER.

With the help of the staff at BHS Headquarters, we’ll be playing the audio from past international contests and showcases, recent and not so recent, so that fans can hear the best of barbershop from all generations.

We’ll kick things off this week with a recording of the 1965 Medalist Showcase, airing on Friday Night Live starting at 6 pm PDT/9 pm EDT. The 1965 Contest took place in Boston and The Four Renegades earned the gold. Also performing at this showcase are The Four Rascals (2nd Place), The Impostors (3rd Place,) The Auto Towners (4th Place & 1966 Champions), The Four Statesmen (5th Place & 1967 Champions), plus a swan song set from the 1964 Champions, The Sidewinders.

Tune in for FREE right here on Acaville.org (or on the Acaville (Apple) and TuneIn (Android) apps). If you can’t tune in on Friday night, the show will re-air during our Saturday Rebroadcasts at 8 am & 8 pm PDT (11 am & 11 pm EDT).

For even more barbershop, don’t forget to listen to our weekly special “ShopTalk” hosted by Mark Holdeman Thursdays at 4 pm PDT/7 pm EDT. It re-airs Saturdays at midnight & noon PDT (3 am & 3 pm EDT).
