One of the numerous musical short subjects that the movie studios churned out, this one purports to offer you a sampling of Western songs from the old west and modern musical westerns: "Home on the Range", "Oh, Susannah", "My Little Buckaroo" and "Deep in the Heart of Texas" are offered for your enjoyment. All are offered as little vignettes; "My Little Buckaroo" is a clip from a Dick Foran musical Western.

Such featurettes were common to movie theaters. Indeed, photographs of early movie theaters advertise sheet music and performances; and Max Fleischer began his famous 'Follow the Bouncing Ball' series of cartoon sing-alongs in 1926
