The Music Played on Swing City Radio?  
The vintage Big Band and Swing music you hear on Swing City Radio is rescued from the vast archives of Old Time Radio Broadcasts, Armed Forces Radio recordings, Radio Remotes and other public sources.  I then clean up the audio, taking out as many pops and crackles that I can while retaining the integrity of the original recording, and then I play it here just for you. On many occasions, I will even keep some of the original song introductions by the old radio announcers so it retains that "authentic feel" so you can enjoy it just like listeners did all of those years ago.

It's safe to say that there are not many radio stations like this one.  That is why Swing City Radio relies so heavily on support from listeners like yourself.  My hopes are that this fantastic Big Band music is never forgotten.

So why a Big Band and Swing Station?  
I've loved Big Band and Swing for over 30 years now.  When I first had the idea to start an Internet Radio Station, I originally planned on focusing on Alternative and Rock.  I'm a fan of all styles of music, but as I went through the process of building the station I found myself being constantly pulled to the Big Band/ Swing format.  I already had a large collection of Big Band music I had rescued from the archives of old time radio broadcasts so I thought, "Heck, let's do it!"

So welcome to Swing City Radio.  I truly hope you enjoy the music that's played here.  I'm trying to create a little place on the Web that Big Band and Swing fans can visit, sit back and listen to their favorite tracks from the 1930's, 40's and 50's.  A comfortable and welcoming place.

Finally, I'd like to thank my growing listening audience.  I really appreciate your passion for Big Band and Swing music and I will do my best to keep the content interesting and entertaining.

Now that you know more about Swing City Radio, go ahead and listen to some great Big Band and Swing Music from the Archives of Old Time Radio!
