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 )
Following on from our 1920s special a few weeks ago, this week we’re zooming in on some of the million sellers of the 1930s. Benny Meroff, Teddy Wilson, Ella, Louis, and Crosby are all stacked up on the auto changer this Sunday morning at 8:30
Catch Vintage Chart Toppers every Sunday morning at 8.30, here on Radio 3.
Another fine collection of vintage 78s and early vinyl this Sunday morning, including a tongue in cheek tale of music worship from The Golden Gate Quartet. Colin also features music of love and money, a song aimed directly at the teens and a trip to France.
