Swing Shift quartet performed April 4, 2024, on Fox 4's "Great Day KC" program, promoting the Heart of America Barbershop Chorus' show of "radio superstars" songs on April 6 in Independence.

Joined by Rick Foreman on baritone, the quartet sang a superstar's song, Billy Joel's doo-wop tune, "The Longest Time."

Tenor Carter Combs told viewers the HOA "live radio" show features former 710 WHB disk jockey "J. Walter Beethoven" who, as morning DJ on the Top 40 station, competed with Fox 4's Dan Henry back when Dan was the morning man on WDAF radio. Both Dan and J. Walter -- Wally Thornton -- are/were barbershoppers.

While at the station, the quartet grabbed a photo with a caricature of Ol' Dan, from his days as Fox 4 weatherman.

Video of the performance is on the Great Day KC website, https://fox4kc.com/great-day-kc/. Tickets are available at https://www.hoachorus.com/.
