Pic of Let's Go To Town

Much like Santa's Elves are at this time of year, I was quite busy this past week as well.  I wasn't building toys for the children of the world, but I was restoring some great Big Band music from the archives of Old Time Radio. Here's a brief overview of what was added into the Swing City Radio rotation:

Music from the AFRS Show "Jubilee":
Some great tracks from artists like: Erskine Hawkins, Lucky Millinder, Benny Carter and Louis Armstrong.  Keep an ear out for "Let's Ball Awhile" and "Tuxedo Junction" by Erskine Hawkins.

"Make Believe Ballroom":
In February of 1940, Glenn Miller's Orchestra was the featured band for the show's 5th Anniversary on the air.  The fantastic performance includes versions of "Tiger Rag", "The Rhumba Jumps" and "Indian Summer".  The Andrews Sisters also made an appearance with "Ciribiribin".

Select performances from "One Night Stand": 
Excellent live recordings featuring: Bobby Sherwood (January 1947), 
Chuck Foster (August 1945), Carl Ravazza (August 1944) and two shows by Jerry Gray (October 1959 and January 1961).  Listen for great versions of "Restringing The Pearls".

Select tracks from "Let's Go To Town":
"Let's Go To Town" was a show that aired in the 1950's as a recruiting tool for The U.S. National Guard.  I've just started to make my way through the show's archives and have already restored and added tracks by Ralph Flanagan, Ray Anthony, Tony Pastor and Woody Herman.  Good Stuff!
