Music aficionado and band leader Colin Aitchison presents the musicians who were the huge, million-selling recording stars of an often forgotten era.
Before Bruno Mars, there was Bing Crosby, before the likes of Adele, there was Billie Holiday ... and before Justin Bieber ... well, where to start!?!
There’s some terrific music and stories from the ‘20s, ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s, plus a few laughs!
(Every Sunday, 8.30am-9am )
Among the highlights, band leader Colin Aitchison and the VCT Syncopators are joined by jazz historian Scott Black in a performance of "Jeepers Creepers", which was premiered by Louis Armstrong back in 1938. Catch the complete shows and the new series on RTHK Radio 3! (Sundays, 8.30am -- 9.00am)
It's another live band special this week, featuring The VCT Syncopators and very special guests, with Humph's Blues, Captain January, Sweet Sweet Georgia, and much more!
It’s our Easter parade packed with treats for the whole family. Like Rosemary’s sister who releases a yellow coloured novelty disc, a classic 1956 Easter egg basket, a spiritual Sunday morning Hymn, and what is it, this week, that Spike is selling?
So, see you 8:30 Sunday morning with Colin, you & us chickens!
Joining Colin this week is special guest Philippe Crompton-Roberts of Hong Kong Swings. The DJ, presenter and man with the moves shares some of his favourite Vintage Chart Toppers featuring some top class line ups and one or two surprises. Tune in Sunday morning for a truly swingin’ show.
