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 )
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.
In the Vintage Chart Toppers collection this Sunday morning, Colin digs up a beauty from 1926 by Phil Ohman. Victor Feldman takes on Georgia Brown. And, we have a curious record from Woody Herman and Nat King Cole… as you’ve never heard them before.
