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 )
78s and early vinyl for a Sunday morning, this week featuring George Olsen and his music, Sid Phillips and his Rhythm, June Hutton and Patsy Cline. We feature Artie’s kind of love and the loitering Mr Formby!
A special guest joins us this week. From the Hong Kong Philharmonic, trombonist Christian Goldsmith chooses a handful of discs that he grew up listening to on his grandfather’s 1925 Victor Talking Machine. His song choices include The Beautiful Sound, some Yankee Doodle Blues and the amazing Jack Teagarden on beer glass! Cheers!
