May Newsletter – Greg Poppleton 1920s – 30s Music

Hi-Ho Bakeliters,


In the merrie month of May, The Phantom Dancer, kicks off with an all-vinyl radio show – a 2 hour non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio.

The 2 May all vinyl Phantom Dancer has everything from a Doris Day live radio set, to Fats Waller on 23 September 1943 to a set of Dizzy Gillespie on 1950s radio and live Trad Bands including Turk Murphy broadcasting from Club Hangover, San Francisco in 1954.

I’ve been bringing you The Phantom Dancer on 107.3 2SER since 1985. You can hear it on the radio and live-streamed over from 12:04pm every Tuesday. You can then hear the show online at



We’re playing a glamorous swing themed wedding this month in Katoomba.

As you know, we play for all types of events, especially those with a 1920s / 1930s theme.

If you, or someone you know, is looking for real 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing for their occasion, please contact the ever helpful Tony Jex for your obligation-free quotation.

I thought you might like to see the latest reel of my movie and TV appearances. These include scenes with Nicole Kidman, Adrien Brody, Emma Booth and Ben Mendelsohn.

I’m currently on TV for a KIIS-FM ad. In May I’ll be in a TV ad for another TV company. If you see me on TV, remember I’ll be waving back at you through the screen.Clips from Chronicles of Narnia, Peter Allen Not The Boy Next Door, Underbelly, Moulin Rouge!, Footy Legends, Backtrack, Hunt Angels and Soop
