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 )
Colin is travelling through time and stopping by to hear performances at Coconut Grove, Royal Festival Hall, Kraft Music Hall and the most prestigious of them all, Birmingham Town Hall ! From bobby soxers to wild drummers and sad serenades, big names taking to the stage during the golden years of radio. Hold on tight.
This Sunday morning, another chance to hear a wicky-whacky-woo from series 3, a 1938 misty memory, we’re shadowing Mr Smith and featuring some great names of baseball. Plus, Joe, the Count and the duck walking Mr Anderson. Warm yer valves up and tune in.
