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 )
This week's show is dedicated to the influence that the big bands & vocalists had on the world of cartoons. Colin gets quite animated as he takes us Stardusting, we catch the cab to St James, we hear from the multi-talented multi-tasking miss Lee, and there's a cheeky Tom on bass! But wait, that's NOT all folks! See you Sunday.
This Sunday morning it’s all going on, and we’re listening with rose coloured glasses.
There’s chanting Cyril, Hoagy’s pals of ‘27, and listen up for the likes of Tommy, Jack, Benny & Marie.
Sunday morning vintage time!......8:30.
