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!
This week on the show an amazing recording from 1920 of some spectacular sax playing, hold on to your seats. Colin also features a crazy little mama, a very clever but broken record, a boneless banana and listen-up for Sir Frederick Gas!
This week we’re up the junction.
We have some young cake walkers.
