The Linen Dusters were a popular Barbershop Quartet during the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
Though primarily in the New England area, and actually
based in Connecticut, they attained national recognition!
At one point it is believed that they were offered a regular spot on the Arthur Godfrey Radio Show.
