Swing Songs from The Nightingale: Swingin’ on a Star

Starry Night

It’s the fourth Sun­day of the month and that means it is time for Swing Songs from The Nightin­gale. Gabrielle Riel broad­casts Big Band, Swing and Elec­tro-Swing live on both Radio Riel’s main stream and Radio Riel Dieselpunk from 6:00pm — 7:30pm North Amer­i­can Pacif­ic time. This month the Swing Songs musi­cal theme is Swingin’ on a Star.

The past sev­er­al weeks have seen sev­er­al celes­tial cur­rent events. On July 20th we hit the 46th anniver­sary of the men from the Apol­lo 11 mis­sion walk­ing on the moon. Also, this month NASA’s New Hori­zons space probe passed the dwarf plan­et Plu­to on the edge of our solar sys­tem. New Hori­zons was launched in Jan­u­ary 2006 with the spe­cif­ic mis­sion to study Plu­to. It has returned a wealth of pho­tographs unlike any that have ever been seen of the plan­et. In hon­or of these events this evening’s pro­gram con­tains music about the sun, stars, moon and more. Tune in and swing on a star!
