Old Father Time Guy Lombardo – Phantom Dancer 20 Dec 2018


OLD FATHER TIME

Guy Lombardo led the world’s leading ‘sweet’ band from 1924 – 1977. Guy became known as ‘Old Father Time’ because his band brought in New Years in the US on radio and later TV from 1929 to 1976. Guy Lombardo is November 20 Phantom Dancer feature artist. See the full swing playlist, Guy Lombardo video and story here.

CANADA

Guy Lombardo was born in London, Ontario, Canada. He and his brothers and one sister all learned musical instruments as children so they could accompany their father who was an amateur singer.

Guy Lombardo’s first public performance was with his brother Carmen at a church lawn party in London in 1914.

ROYAL

Guy formed his Royal Canadian band in 1924 with his brothers Carmen, Lebert and Victor, and other musicians from London.

Promoted as creating ‘the sweetest music this side of Heaven’, the Royal Canadians may have sold up to 300 million records in its lifetime.

HITS

The band made its first record in 1924 and recorded sporadically until signed to Columbia in 1927 when they had their first big hit. From then on they recorded prolifically for the top record companies including Brunswick and Decca.

Though the jazz and swing community ridiculed the band’s sweet style, Louis Armstrong called Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians his favourite band.

EVE

Guy Lombardo is most famous for 48 years of New Years Eve band broadcasts on radio and then TV.

Lombardo played his first New Years Eve broadcast in 1928.

Guy Lombardo

The following year, his orchestra played US radio’s first national New Years broadcast from New York City’s Roosevelt Hotel. In fact, we hear Guy Lombardo broadcasting from the Grill Room of the Hotel Roosevelt in this week’s Phantom Dancer.

He played New Years in the Grill Room of the Hotel Roosevelt every year until 1959 when he switched to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. He played New Years there every year until 1976. His TV New Year shows began in 1956. As early as 1945, he was being familiarly introduced over New Years airwaves as ‘Old Father Time’. His radio theme, from 1929, was the traditional New Yeras Eve song, ‘Auld Lang Syne’.

Even after Lombardo’s death in 1977, the Royal Canadians’ New Years specials continued for two more years on CBS. The Royal Canadians’ recording of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ still plays as the first song of the new year in Times Square, New York City.

VIDEO

This week’s Phantom Dancer video of the week is Guy Lombardo’s New Years Eve TV special in New York City live from the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in 1976 – his last. It includes the Guy Lombardo version of the 1970s hit, ‘Feelings’ (at 7’35”).

10 Nov Show – I Can’t Give You Anything But Love


On Saturday November 10, the band and I returned to our favourite venue in Sydney’s outer west, Penrith RSL, for an afternoon of 1920s – 30s jazz and swing.

greg poppleton 1920s - 1930s singer

There was lots of dancing, lots of laughing and lots of jazz.

Here’s a very personal version of ‘I Can’t Give You Anything But Love’ which I sang to myself as a selfie live in front of the Penrith club audience.

It was like singing into the bathroom mirror, but with a band behind me, which included Grahame Conlon guitar, Dave Clayton double bass and Bob Gillespie drums. Enjoy!

Valaida Snow Woman of Huge Talent – Phantom Dancer 13 Nov 2018


WOMAN OF HUGE TALENT

Trumpeter and singer Valaida Snow told many stories about herself. She was a huge star in the 1930s. A set of sides she recorded in 1936-37 London is this week’s Phantom Dancer feature.

PHANTOM DANCER

The Phantom Dancer is your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV every week. I’ve been bringing you The Phantom Dancer on radio 2SER, and now online, since 1985.

Listen on-air every Tuesday 12:04-2:00pm AEST (+11 GMT) and online

See this week’s full play list and video of the week below.

VALAIDA SNOW

was the daughter of vaudevillian parents and trod the boards herself at an early age in a duet act with her sister, Lavaida.

Her father was murdered by the Elephant Man in a pay dispute

valaida snow

DANCER

In the early 1920s she blew New York away with her tap dance act.

Louis Armstrong hailed her the greatest performer he had ever seen when he caught her act in a Chicago club. While playing trumpet, she stepped into seven different pairs of shoes in a line, including clogs and Russian boots, in each pair she’d do a different step related to the shoes. Her tap dancing was rated as up there with Bojangles.

WORLD TOUR

In the early 1930s, Valaida toured Asia and Europe, performing in Shanghai, Batavia, Rangoon, the Balkans, Paris and then London. She then starred in a Broadway show with Ethel Merman.

valaida snow

LONDON

Relevant to the records on this week’s Phantom Dancer, Valaida starred in Lew Leslie’s London production of ‘Blackbirds of 1934’. This lead to the Parlophone records I’ll be spinning for you today.

She did return to US for shows in Los Angeles and New York City based on the sell-out shows she’d been doing in London and she sold out shows in the US, too. During her time in LA she claimed to have made movies with Cary Grant and Miriam Hopkins.

GOLD TRUMPET

Returning to Europe she played and recorded again in London. She appeared in Switzerland, Paris and The Netherlands where Queen Wilhelmina presented her with a gold trumpet. In 1939-40 she played and recorded in Stockholm and Copenhagen.

ARREST

Despite the Nazi occupation of Denmark, she returned there in 1941. She was arrested and interned in a Gestapo prison in Copenhagen.

She returned to the US, broken, in 1943, as part of a prisoner exchange.

She never recovered from her Nazi imprisonment, weighing only 70 pounds when she returned to the US. Her incarceration’s debilitationg effect on her health killed her career.

She continued to perform in clubs in the US until she died in the mid 1950s.

Ferde Grofe Seeking Music Rather Than Fame – 6 November Phantom Dancer


RISING ABOVE

There are people who go out of their way to ruin another person’s career.

This week’s Phantom Dancer feature artist, Ferde Grofe, was a target of such abuse. He rose above it. The U.S composer, arranger, pianist and electronic music pioneer sought music rather than fame. You mightn’t know his name. You’ll certainly know his music. Here’s his story…

Ferde Grofe

PHANTOM DANCER

The Phantom Dancer, with Greg Poppleton, is your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV every week. It’s been on 2SER since 1985, thanks to your financial support in 33 subscriber drives.

And over those years, Greg Poppleton and The Phantom Dancer have inspired musicians, painters, film, TV and theatre creatives.

Listen on-air every Tuesday 12:04-2:00pm AEST (+11 GMT) and online

See this week’s full play list and video of the week below.

The last hour of the live mix is all vinyl.

FERDE GROFE

was born into a family with four generations of classical musicians.

Piano was his favourite instrument, but he also played viola, violin, baritone horn, alto horn and cornet. As a teenager he played in dance bands and brass bands. He later played violin in the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra.

Ferde arranged music and composed. He received his first composing commission at age 17.

ferde grofe

PAUL WHITEMAN

Grofe joined the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, ‘the King of Jazz’, in 1920 as a jazz pianist and arranger. (Incidentally, on this week’s Phantom Dancer you’ll hear Paul’s daughter, Loyce Whiteman, singing with Gus Arnheim in Cocoanut Grove Radio Transcriptions from 1931.)

His most important arrangement for the Whiteman band was for the 1924 debut of George Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’. He transformed Gershwin’s two piano piece into an orchestral masterpiece. In fact, Grofe’s 1942 arrangement of Rhapsody in Blue is the one most often heard today.

THE PRIME MINISTER OF JAZZ

In 1932, The New York Times called Grofe ‘the Prime Minister of Jazz’, since his boss, Whiteman was ‘the King of Jazz’.

1932 was also the year Grofe left the Whiteman Orchestra.

Whiteman then tried to ruin Grofe’s career. First he created union problems for Grofe, then he slandered Grofe to the New York based advertisers who booked orchestras for the radio shows. He insinuated that Grofe was a sub-standard conductor and booking him would lower the quality of their programs.

RADIO

Whiteman’s rumours stymied Grofe’s career for over a year. He couldn’t get radio work so his management sent him on a conducting tour of B-grade orchestras.

However, one of his compositions did get aired in that first year, on band leader Nat Shilkret’s ‘His Masters Voice on the Air’ radio transcription series for RCA Victor. That was ‘On The Trail’, from Grofe’s famous ‘Grand Canyon Suite’. It became Grofe’s musical signature.

(Shilkret had also introduced a Grofe number on his Shilkret Novelties radio show the previous year when Grofe was still with Whiteman. That song was Mardi Gras, from Grofe’s Mississippi Suite.)

Grofe did end up getting gigs conducting radio orchestras throughout the 1930s, but they were all short term contracts.

Of relevance to this week’s Phantom Dancer is Grofe’s stint for ‘The Ford V-8 Revue’ in 1939.

Grofe was also hired by Ford in 1939 to be their orchestra leader for the New York World’s Fair. Grofe wrote his suite ‘Wheels’ for Ford. We’ll hear the ‘Bicycle’ movement from ‘Wheels’ on this week’s The Phantom Dancer.

Whiteman also commissioned Grofe to write music for the New York World Fair. Grofe’s compositions were Trylon and Perisphere, two futuristic buildings at the Fair.

NBC staff arranger, conductor and musical director (in the 1930s-40s) Tom Bennett credited Grofe with being one of the three great innovators in the history of orchestration along with Berlioz and Rimsky-Korsakov. Bennett wrote this in his article ‘Arranging Music for Radio’ for the book ‘Music in Radio Broadcasting’ by Gilbert Chase.

Grofe was hired by Ford in 1939 to be their orchestra leader for the New York World’s Fair. Grofe wrote his suite ‘Wheels’ for the Ford Dealers of America. We’ll hear the ‘Bicycle’ movement from ‘Wheels’ on this week’s The Phantom Dancer. Whiteman also commissioned Grofe to write music for the New York World Fair. His compositions were Trylon and Perisphere, two futuristic buildings at the Fair.

I’ve listed Grofe’s suites, many for corporate clients below.

novochord

ELECTRONIC MUSIC

The Hammond Company asked Grofe in 1938 to conduct and arrange for ‘The New World Ensemble’ of four Novachords (electronic keyboards) and a solo Hammond organ.

He was reluctant at first to conduct a quintet after conducting symphony orchestras, but realised he’d be introducing a new way of expressing music to the world, so he accepted.

The Novochord was not a commercial success, but his involvement in writing and being spokesman for the instrument whetted Grofe’s interest in elctronica.

In the 1950s, Grofe became ‘the sound of Mars’ writing mainly science fiction film scores for novochord and theremin. The most famous example is the soundtrack for the 1950 classic ‘Rocketship X-M’ starring Lloyd Bridges.

Grofe continued writing and playing music up till his death in 1972.

Peter Kreuder German Swing Composer – Phantom Dancer 30 October


THANK YOU

This week’s Phantom Dancer has a set of 1930s-40s swing by request of Jonathan, a supporter who called during last week’s 2SER Supporter Drive.

I’ve chosen four commercial releases of stage and film songs written by the prolific German composer and child prodigy, Peter Kreuder.

Thank you to everyone who called and went online to become 2SER financial supporters during this year’s 2SER Phantom Dancer Supporter Drive.

You keep The Phantom Dancer going.

See this week’s full play list and video of the week below.

PETER KREUDER

Peter Kreuder was a German pianist, composer and conductor. He was a child prodigy who enrolled as a piano student in the Cologne Conservatorium at age four and gave his first concert at age five.

He wrote popular and art songs, operettas, musicals, a piano concerto and two operas.

Most importantly for today’s Phantom Dancer he also wrote stage and film music with a lot of swing style.

Beginning by helping arrange the musical score to Marlene Dietrich’s breakthrough film, The Blue Angel, in 1930, he went on to write music for around 150 movies.

He became Germany’s most in-demand film composer in the 1930s and 40s. All his songs in this week’s Phantom Dancer come from this period.

He was so important to the German film industry that he was forced to return to Germany from Sweden (to where he had emigrated in 1939) after Nazi threats to his relatives in Germany. Kreuder had been a Nazi Party member from 1932-34 when he resigned.

After the war he took Austrian citizenship. He conducted radio orchestras in Argentina and Brazil in the 1940s, writing again for German film in the 1950s and writing two memoirs.

VIDEO

This week’s Phantom Dancer video of the week features Peter Kreuder’s music in the 1939 German western, ‘Wasser für Canitoga’.

2SER Supporter Drive – Week 2 Phantom Dancer


2SER subscriber drive

COMMUNITY

2SER is a community radio station. Your radio station.

It’s also 300+ volunteers with a passion for high quality radio.

It’s an exciting grassroots movement.

It’s created by aware people like you and me to educate:
– to make sure you get your favourite real music by your favourite non-commercial artists,
– to bring to you what’s really going on in your community and in your world by  giving you independent news and current affairs unfiltered by politically connected billionaires and millionaires.

It’s yours,  24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I VOLUNTEER. I SUPPORT

I’m a 2SER volunteer and a supporter. I’ve produced and presented The Phantom Dancer on 2SER for you since 1985. I volunteer and I support 2SER financially during the Supporter Drive very year.

What Alex Turnbull, son of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, has pinned to his Twitter feed, applies as much to politics, as to how active and engaged you are as a radio listener so as not to be a soulless puppet to vested interests:

“If you want blind unthinking faith you can go to a place of worship. If all you are is barracking for a football team in politics you’re just a useful idiot footsoldier for the vested interests that run the place. Wake up.” Alex Turnbull

Wake up. Vote against the crass babel of vested interests on-air and instead support your grassroots community radio, 2SER.

Visit 2SER Support or call 9514 9500

$1 MILLION

On the light side of 2SER, but no less important to many of you who would feel depressed if the show wasn’t on-air, is The Phantom Dancer.

Nowhere else can you hear a non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-1960s radio and TV every week.

If I stopped volunteering at 2SER and stopped supporting financially every Supporter Drive, I’d be a cop-out – a mindless drone for populism and big money popular culture – neither of which cares for me and you.

And there’d be nowhere else for you to hear your favourite Phantom Dancer mix.

Likewise, without your financial support for 2SER, this radio station could be lost forever.

Supporting 2SER is simple and painless. Just one dollar or two a week, direct debited weekly from your credit card, is all you need to do.

Visit 2SER Support or call 9514 9500 to set this up.

It costs $1 million a year to run 2SER. Your dollar every week helps.

2SER Greg Poppleton

FUND 2SER

Think of 2SER Supporter Drive like a radio version of a Go Fund Me campaign. Only we’ve been doing it for longer than the World Wide Web.

It’s fundraising. For a cause that affects your quality of life every day – 2SER.

Just like an online funding campaign, there are set supporter amounts. These are:
$40 concession
$80 standard
$160 passionate
$600 life member

Or, you can support with any $$$ amount you like.

Everyone goes in the daily prize draw and the major Supporter Drive prize draw.

Everyone who supports 2SER gets exclusive access to 2SER on-air and online giveaways during the year to concert and theatre tickets at great venues to see your favourite local and overseas artists.

THANK YOU

This is the second week of the annual 2SER Supporter Drive.

Thank you to everyone who went online and called 9514 9500 to support community radio 2SER during last Tuesday’s Phantom Dancer.

I look forward to hearing from you online or calling 9514 9500 to fund 2SER during this Tuesday’s The Phantom Dancer, 12:04-2:00pm AEST (+11 GMT).

I have a great non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s – 1960s radio and TV lined up for you to say THANK YOU.

Inside the Phantom Dancer 2SER study filmed just last month. Yes, I’m a volunteer, volunteering 16 hours a week for you to prepare and present The Phantom Dancer. It ain’t slick, it ain’t crass – it’s real, it’s grassroots, it’s you…
