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 Colin opens up the mail bag and reads out some of the vintage 78s you’ve wanted to hear or hear again on the show. It’s a wonderful ride through moods, tributes and amazing performances. Thanks for the messages and kind words, enjoy the Sunday morning ride.
Colin’s special guest this week is Neville Sarony, son of British singer, actor and songwriter Leslie Sarony. We explore a little of the life and career of this fabulous entertainer with the songs and influences that span decades. We’re cooking up a little pie of fun with tea, refreshments and a little name dropping. Join us Sunday morning!
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!
