Swing, Big Band & Trad Jazz

Bert Ambrose And His Orchestra - from the film Soft Lights and Sweet Music (1936)

Join us today for a collection of Big Band and trad jazz music that spans the period 1920–50. You’ll hear the Charleston to Glenn Miller and everything in between, with both instrumental and vocal selections. In addition I’ve thrown in a few period novelty songs for your amusement.

And don’t forget, if you like what you hear today, this is the kind of music – and more – that you can hear all the time on Radio Riel’s Dieselpunk stream.

The MOST, Susannah’s monthly show featuring Music From The Original Sound Track – with the best of jazz and other film tracks, often direct from the vinyl, from the 50s, 60s and beyond – usually goes out on the first Wednesday of the month, but this time it goes out next week – don’t miss t!
