Phantom Dancer 26 Jan 2016 – Red Nichols 1929 Vitaphone Short


Your non-stop 2 hour swing and jazz mix from live 1920s-60s radio and TV, The Phantom Dancer with Greg Poppleton on 107.3 2SER, has a slightly newer format.

Each of the 8 sets now has a defined theme.

For example, Set 5, the first vinyl set, is ‘1940s Swing Radio’, with excerpts from broadcasts by Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Les Brown and Charlie Barnet.

STOP PRESS
But on the day I didn’t get to play Sets 5 to 8. The turntables were unavailable due to the public holiday. So, on the fly, I did play a set of doozy 1920s sides including Alphonso Trent’s Nightmare for you, some Chet Baker from 1954 radio, the Boswell Sisters from 1934 radio – check it out streamed below.

In the meantime I’ll add Sets 5 to 8 to the vinyl hour of the Tues 9 Feb Phantom Dancer so you don’t miss out.
