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!

It's another packed half hour of rockin’ and swingin’ this week on VCT, as Colin goes through an exciting collection of records featuring The Duke, Tito Burns, Jack Jackson and Sam Costa, as well as a tribute to the late Jerry Lee Lewis, and a Bell Records 78 featuring The Fabulous Dorseys.
We’re making our way through those autumn leaves this week on Vintage Chart Toppers, for our end of summer show. It will feature George Hall, The Revellers, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mercer, and Glenn Miller. Plus, a little behind the scenes look at the life of Eddie Fontaine… What a story… What great tunes!
