2SER 11 November Phantom Dancer Encore

Hats Off To You Phantom Dancers,

This week I’m away from the 107.3 2SER studio so please enjoy an encore Phantom Dancer from July 2013. The show includes live swing and jazz from 1920s-60s radio & TV by Count Basie, Dave Brubeck, Charlie Parker & Strings, Phil Spitalny, Anson Weeks and Frank Coughlan. Full play list below.

And the Video of the Week? Just like in 2013, a fragment of a radio broadcast by swing band leader Hans Rehmstedt from the 1940s playing Amazonas. More Julius Sumner Miller next week. Enjoy!
