25 April Phantom Dancer – Boswell Sisters Film Clip ‘Crazy People’ (1932)


The Phantom Dancer, which I’ve been presenting on 107.3 2SER Sydney since 1985, is your non-stop 2 hour swing and jazz mix from live 1920s-60s radio and TV.

Today’s Phantom Dancer includes:
– a set of Duke Ellington trombonist’s Juan Tizol compositions,
– a set of Cuban rhythms by Xavier Cugat and Desi Arnez,
– 2 sets of rare mid-1930s swing and more from live 1920s-60s radio and TV broadcasts.

You can now hear today’s show online at radio 2SER.

And the last hour is all vinyl!
