The World Broadcasting System (WBS) was a transcription company with professional studio locations in New York, Chicago, and California, created in the early years of commercial radio to record and provide popular music on 16 inch discs to participating radio stations on a subscription basis. These nationally syndicated music broadcasts were not commercially available and are unique in that regard.

This release of Ernest Tubb’s recordings from 1944-1945 represent more than a third of the sides he recorded for WBS, which was a subsidiary of Decca at the time, and was the first to emerge from this strike having an agreement with the musician’s union to record the music of many of its artists in this radio transcription format.

Ernest Tubb and his Texas Troubadours Volume 2 also continues the George H. Buck Jazz Foundation's new label (WBS) which focuses primarily on Country, Folk, and Americana music.
