3 January 2017 Phantom Dancer – Video: Independent Radio Station WMCA NY 1952


The first Phantom Dancer for 2017. Will it be like the first Phantom Dancer for 2007, 1997 or 1987? Nope, lot’s of newly discovered radio swing and jazz airchecks for you from the 1930s-60s in a non-stop two hour mix.

Hear it Now online at 2SER.com

The Phantom Dancer is as much a first hand social history program as much as it is a music show, without me lecturing. So as well swing and jazz we hear a few vintage ads, a set of theatre organ and Hammond organ on 1930s radio and Duke Ellington on air through the decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s.

If you can’t catch the show live on one of the over 22 radio stations it goes to air on each week, come back here late next Tuesday because this is where I put the link to the online mix.

See the play list below, after The Phantom Dancer video of the Week. How independent radio is made. A film from the 1940s.

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.
