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 )
Among the highlights, band leader Colin Aitchison and the VCT Syncopators are joined by jazz historian Scott Black in a performance of "Jeepers Creepers", which was premiered by Louis Armstrong back in 1938. Catch the complete shows and the new series on RTHK Radio 3! (Sundays, 8.30am -- 9.00am)
It's another live band special this week, featuring The VCT Syncopators and very special guests, with Humph's Blues, Captain January, Sweet Sweet Georgia, and much more!
This week Colin opens up the mail bag and reads out some of the vintage 78s you’ve wanted to hear or hear again on the show. It’s a wonderful ride through moods, tributes and amazing performances. Thanks for the messages and kind words, enjoy the Sunday morning ride.
Colin’s special guest this week is Neville Sarony, son of British singer, actor and songwriter Leslie Sarony. We explore a little of the life and career of this fabulous entertainer with the songs and influences that span decades. We’re cooking up a little pie of fun with tea, refreshments and a little name dropping. Join us Sunday morning!
