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’s special guest is top singer Martin Eaton. We link up with him in Norwich in the UK, to find out how he got into the music business, and ended up working with some amazing names over the years as well. He’ll also choose some of the vintage recordings that really stand out for him, and we’ll get to hear him sing, too. Also in this episode; listen out for Bill Perkins, Ben Webster, Nat King Cole, Les Brown, and more… on Vintage Chart Toppers.
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.
