1 August Phantom Dancer – Episode 5 Radar Men From The Moon


If the 25 July show is anything to go by, the 1 August Phantom Dancer is going to be the best show ever.

Your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV has been presented by myself, Greg Poppleton, over radio station 107.3 2SER Sydney, and now online, since 1985.

See the 1 August play list below.

You’ll hear that set of jazz greats on 1950s-60s Tonight Shows I didn’t get to play after running out of time last week. There’s a set of women stars on 1940s-50s radio, including The International Sweethearts of Rhythm that was missed last week plus Benny Goodman on 1937-38 radio

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week this week is episode 5 of the 1940s Republic serial, Radar Men From The Moon.
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!

Your Phantom Dancer video of the Week is a reflective piece I filmed at Waiheke in New Zealand last year.
