8 Nov Phantom Dancer – Personal Hygiene For Young Girls (c1920)


It’s Phantom Dancer time Tuesday on radio and online – your two hour non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio with Greg Poppleton. What’s on?

Well, there’s a set of ‘Sweet Bands’ from live 1930s-40s radio and some early late night Benny Goodman from 1935. The Velvet Fog, Mel Torme, sings two songs including one when aged 17 in front of Chico Marx’s Orchestra on a CBS Fitch Bandwagon and the last hour is all vinyl.

Tirelessly searching YouTube for a swingy, jazzy, instructive, or ‘weird and wonderful’ Video of the Week, I’ve found something curiously wonderful – a circa 1920s ‘Women’s Hygiene’ film. It actually is medically educational (and educational as a social history) though the shower scene does verge on the pseudo-educational sexploitation films of the 1950s-60s. Enjoy!

Make sure you come back to this blog, Greg Poppleton’s Radio Lounge, every Tuesday, for the newest Phantom Dancer play list and Video of the Week!

Thank you.
