2 Hour Non-Stop Swing Jazz Mix,

NOW Online for next 4 weeks at 2ser.com

12 noon (-11 GMT) Tuesday 24 March is Phantom Dancer time on 107.3 2SER Sydney. Swing, jazz and dance from live 1920s-60s radio and TV presented by Greg Poppleton on 30 CRN stations across Australia and online.

This week, in the 2 hour radio mix, you’ll hear live swing and jazz by Buddy Clark, Benny Goodman, The Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street, Gene Krupa and more. Listen online at http://www.2ser.com.

Featured today, we’ll hear a set of Duke Ellington from ABC’s 1945-46 ‘A Date With The Duke’ series.

And today’s Phantom Dancer closes with the complete (I hope!) ‘Walkin’ by Miles Davis over Bandstand USA and WOR in 1959. I had to cut it short, ran out of time, on the 3 March show.

Marvel at the full 2 hour non-stop mix play list in all its eclectic majesty below…

Plus, as this week’s Phantom Dancer Video of the Week, recorded at ABC-TV in Sydney in 1969, Julius Sumner Miller investigates evaporation, boiling and freezing.  This is program 25 in the series, ‘Dramatic Demonstrations In Physics.’ Enjoy!
