Swing, Big Band & Trad Jazz

Join us today for a col­lec­tion of Big Band, Swing 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 we’ve thrown in a few peri­od nov­el­ty songs for your amuse­ment. Today’s pro­gramme fea­tures a mix­ture of orig­i­nal peri­od* and mod­ern recordings.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin.  Click here to start your play­er if your brows­er is set up to pass streams to an exter­nal play­er or can play audio streams direct (many can).

*Some orig­i­nal peri­od record­ings may con­tain offen­sive lan­guage or neg­a­tive stereo­types. Such mate­ri­als should be seen in the con­text of the time peri­od and as a reflec­tion of atti­tudes of the time. The record­ings are part of the his­tor­i­cal record, and do not rep­re­sent the views of Radio Riel.
