A dip of the lid to you, Phantom Dancers,

STOP PRESS
3 June Phantom Dancer radio show now online for one month only
 http://www.2ser.com/component/k2/item/9179-phantom-dancer-3-june-2014

On this Tuesday’s show, a set of Lee Konitz followed by Charlie Parker live off the wireless in 1954, and the Dallape Orchestra swing George Formby’s ‘When I’m Cleaning Windows’ in Helsinki in 1938. I’ll also be starting each June show with a 1936-1940 recording by Sydney swing maestro, Dick Freeman. Check out the full play list.

And for your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week, the 1948 Los Angeles Streetscape film (see 20 May blog entry) was so popular with you that I’ve dug up another for your perusal. Enjoy!
