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 Sunday morning we’re doing some serious tune twisting. It’s the return of dreaming Bobby, we hear from the last of the red hot mamas, a most nervous Sunday driver and we’re meeting the lads for a sing-a-long by the waterside.
This week we have vintage tunes for the mums. A lovely letter from the 30s, a question to his mum from cheeky George, and not only do we have a couple of songs for the in-laws, Colin’s even throwing in a Charleston lesson! Plus, an absolute tear jerker of a tune from The Mills Brothers. Make sure mum’s listening Sunday morning.
This Sunday morning, we’re all dressed our best for…...the queen of syncopation and the man Long on music. A true Starr of jazz, pop and country, a pretty tribute to Mr Jackson, and out of nowhere it’s Vic!
Plus, we’re catching the omnibus. Tickets, please!
