I don't remember those lyrics, but I certainly remember the Hoosier Hot Shots on the radioin the 1940's.We called it 'the wireless' then. Didn't they do 'Leave the dishes in the sink', and 'Pass the biscuits Miranndy'?

The Hoosier Hot Shots certainly did record SINCE WE PUT A RADIO OUT IN THE HENHOUSE; it was originally released as a 78-rpm record, b/w WHEN LIGHTNIN' STRUCK THE COON CREEK PARTY LINE in 1941. It's credited to Chester Finley & Russ Hull.

It's on "Are You Ready, Hezzie?" (1994) and "The Definitive Hoosier Hotshots Collection" (2003).

It's also on "Way Down in Arkansas" (2003) and "Everybody Stomp" (2003)—but on those albums, they omitted "Out" from the title.

Indiana University has the sheet music, although it's not viewable online.

I was able to assemble this much of the lyrics from various sound samples found online. I couldn't find a complete recording. These lyrics certainly aren't complete, and the verses might not even be consecutive.

Since we put a radio out in the henhouse,
There's more cock-a-doodle in the rooster's crow.
Hens all sing like Bloke an' Nary(?),
Fill their nests with cackleberries,
And they're twice't as big as farmer Brown's, I know. (I know.)
How the handles of the market basket sigh and groan,
And the crank has fallen off the telephone.
When the eggs begin to hatchin',
Ev'ry chicken comes out scratchin'
Since our henhouse has got a radio.

Now that radio we put out in the henhouse
Was the smartest thing we ever did, by Joe.
When they hear "cock-a-doodle,"
The hens all skiddoodle,
Cluckin', "When ya gotta go, ya gotta go."
We was worried as could be; we had a mortgage due.
We thought our farmin' days were nearly through (nearly through).
Our troubles are over; we're....

[cackleberries = eggs]

Hens all sing like BLUE CANARIES.
I can fill in the rest of the gaps (there aren't many) in a day or two. I have the recording.

Blue canaries! Perfectly obvious when I listened to it again. Now why couldn't I hear that the first time? I guess "blue canaries" aren't in my mental vocabulary.

I remember when my relatives who were dairy farmers put radios in the cow barns...and milking sheds...they improved their production. When looking for info on this i found only this:

We may be the only station in the world broadcasting from the milk house of an old dairy barn, but we emphasize Canadian music and Canadian content.
