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 )
From New Orleans to Moulin Rouge, it’s quite a ride this Sunday morning.
With sweeteners from Mantovani, Crosby & Dorsey, a rocker from Little Richard, and a little ragtime from Frankie Carle... it’s all the hits and so much more.
Among the goodies, this week, a huge VCT from Stan Kenton, a dance sensation from Paul Whiteman in 1925, and a 1934 hit... from a horror film! We're looking into the mail bag once again for a couple of fine requests and a little history lesson, possibly, with Kay Starr.
