"Every home needs Crazy Crystals!"

Crazy Water CrystalsThis is the message our radio host wants us to take to heart.  Yes, the Crazy Water Crystal Radio Program is a 15 minute commercial for Patent Medicine type of elixir, made in the home from the snowy residue from the Crazy Well in Mineral Wells Texas. But in exchange for listening to their commercial, we are treated to a variety of early Country Western and Bluegrass Music. 

The program was broadcast from the lobby of the Crazy Water Hotel, about 1935-1940, both regionally and on the NBC networks. Crazy Water Crystals hired mostly country & hillbilly groups to play on the radio.  A booming tourist industry grew in the town of Mineral Wells, Texas, Mineral Wells Radioin the early part of the 20th century, based on the alleged health benefits of the local waters. 

The local legend holds that an insane woman was cured after drinking from the "Crazy Spring." During the Depression era, The Crazy Water Company focused on sales of their crystals --a snowy white residue left from the evaporation of their waters. Their "Crazy Gang" explained how the elixir could be reconstituted with tap water, giving folks all the benefits without having to leave home. Weatherford, TX, native Mary Martin appeared in Crazy shows before shoe attained Broadway and Hollywood stardom. During the 1992 opening of the Grand Ole Opry, a large Crazy Water Crystal sign was diplayed, and a photo of Hank Snow singing on a Crazy Water Crystals  Radio program hangs in the museum's permanent exhibit.
