Picture in your mind a local radio show which features quirky on air personalities, add to that a touch of Prairie Home Companion and Garrison Keillor style comedy and watch it all unfold right before your eyes as it happens. That is WBOG is on the AIR! An original musical comedy performed by the Greater Cranberry Men’s Chorus and friends, the Unfinished Business Quartet and DJ Greg McAtee.

This show for the entire family will feature comedy, slapstick, an old time favorite comedy bit and popular songs from the 20’s through the 70’s sung in close harmony throughout the show and featuring the Unfinished Business Quartet – The 2017 4th Place International Senior Quartet finalists.  

The show will take place on Sunday May 21, 2017 at 6 pm at the new Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School in Cranberry Twp. General Admission Tickets are just ($12 at the door). Come early and take your chance on the basket raffle and 50/50.

Discover to your surprise and delight that everything you hear on the radio isn’t always as it seems.  You’ll watch and hear Cranberry’s fictitious radio station WBOG come to life and announce they are on the AIR!

Who are we? Men of all ages who LOVE close harmony.

The Greater Cranberry Chapter Bogmeisters Chorus is a part of the Barbershop Harmony Society which is the world’s largest male a cappella singing organization with approximately 26,000 members in the US and Canada plus affiliates in nine other countries. We sing barbershop style music for recreation, performance and in competitions. We welcome new singers young and old who love the fun and challenge of a cappella singing. Even if you can't read music, we'll teach you how to put a song in your heart and smiles on people's faces and joy in their hearts through music. The first time you "ring a chord" in 4-part close harmony, you'll feel chills running down your spine. There's nothing like it.

The goal of the Bogmeisters Chorus is to preserve the original American artform of barbershop harmony and we work very hard at trying to perfect the wonderful close harmony that is uniquely it's own.  Along with preserving the "old songs" we also sing songs from the Great American Song Book, some oldies, songs from the Big Band Era, Country Music and sometimes even some Rock n' Roll. We also have a repertoire of patriotic tunes and have sung the National Anthem for the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Butler Blue Sox.  We have something for everyone and every age.
