Tragedy Over Niagara in a Barrel (1955). Phantom Dancer 5 Aug 2014


August greetings to you, Phantom Dancers,

The first show of the month and if last week’s show was anything to go by, this Phantom Dancer will be the best show ever. HEAR IT ARCHIVED ONLINE AT 2SER.COM

This Tuesday 5 Aug at 12 noon on 107.3 2SER and online at 2ser.com we listen to 1930s airchecks by Johnny Green the composer of Body and Soul amongst many other songs.

For the Old Fygges, there are 1940s radio broadcasts by Eddie Condon on the Blue Network, This Is Jazz and The Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street featuring Henry ‘Hot Lips’ Levine.

The second hour, as always, goes vinyl, and we’ll be going way back to radio broadcasts by bandleaders Anson Weeks and Ray Miller then way forward to radio broadcasts by Dizzy Gillespie and Slim Gaillard.

See the full play list below.

The Phantom Dancer will be online at 2ser.com after the broadcast. Follow the Phantom Dancer links on the Program Guide at http://2ser.com

Hope you like the show, daddy-o. This week’s Phantom Dancer Video of the Week from the YoutTube vaults has a tragic ending.
