Songs from the Nightingale: The Roaring 20s, 1920 — 1924

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.
