Jack Payne BBC Dance Orchestra Live 1931. Phantom Dancer 22 July 2014


By Gum, Phantom Dancers,

Today’s (22 July) Phantom Dancer is now online for your listening and dancing pleasure – until September.

I ran out of time on the 8 July show to play you the great live 1930s radio swing and jazz by Fats Waller, Duke Ellington I had listed in the play list for you. And I had to talk over Count Basie to say goodbye and close the show. Plus, I missed out playing you the scheduled Singing Sam track and Big Noise From Winnetka live on the wireless by the Bob Crosby crew.

So this week all those wonderful airchecks will be played, plus more swing and jazz from 1930s-50s radio and TV by Vaughn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Bunny Berrigan and more. See the play list below.

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week is a fine example of how valuable it is to record your favourite radio shows, like The Phantom Dancer, at home.

Here is a home recording made 29 January 1931 of four songs by Jack Payne and the BBC Dance Orchestra broadcasting live from ‘The London Studio’. Enjoy!
