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 on VCT we're off to Chicago with Tommy Dorsey, and St Louis with the mighty Earl Hines.
We've got a terrific side from Teddy Joyce in 1934 and a number one song of sin from Eddy Howard. All this, plus the... dancing tambourine!
Every Sunday morning from 8.30 to 9
Not only do we have a Riverboat Shuffle this week on VCT, but a handful of 78s and early vinyl featuring some 50s do-wop and jazz, classic ragtime, and... a hot Spanish number as well.
