Today’s Roaring 20s program on Radio Riel’s Main stream includes “Songs from the Nightingale: The Roaring 20s, 1920 — 1924”, Gabrielle Riel’s live broadcast from from 6:00pm — 7:30pm North American Pacific time.

The decade of the 1920s was hugely instrumental in the development of popular music in the 20th Century. This was the decade in which the seeds of Jazz and then Rock and Roll were sown. Other than Ragtime, the music from the first 20 years of the 20th Century was primarily popular music, for example the music from Vaudeville, novelty songs like “Come Josephine in My Flying Machine” and plaintive ballads like “After You’ve Gone”.

The 1920s saw the emergence of Early Jazz from the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke. This evening’s program features songs from these artists as well as a dash of Electro Swing songs with roots in the 1920s!

You can tune in to tonight’s program on Radio Riel’s main stream or on Radio Riel Dieselpunk.
