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.

There’s a set of Shuffle Rhythm bands from 1930s-40s radio, modern jazz from 1950-60 radio and a broadcast of song with full orchestra from a plane flying 24,000 feet above New York City in 1946.

The final hour of the mix is all vinyl.

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week:

Since on today’s Phantom Dancer, Bobby Troup sings his self-penned hit ‘Route 66’, your Vid of the Week has the singer of another Bobby Troup song, the locally famous, ‘My City of Sydney’. That singer is Tony Leonetti. And he’s on the TV version of the radio show that opens today’s Phantom Dancer, ‘Your Hit Parade’. Tony Leonetti sings the Everly Brothers’ ‘All I Do is Dream (Dream, Dream, Dream)’. Enjoy!

Phantom Dancer 2 Feb 2016 – Earliest Recorded Jazz Ballad?


This is the 200th Phantom Dancer over the Community Radio Network across Australia.

You can now hear it online at 2ser.com

Meanwhile, on its home station 107.3 2SER Sydney, Greg Poppleton has been bringing you The Phantom Dancer, your non-stop 2 hour swing and jazz mix from live 1920s-60s radio and TV, since it all began in December 1985.

This makes Greg Poppleton Australia’s longest running swing DJ, starting long before swing regained fashionability, and Australia’s longest running jazz broadcaster.

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, a set of bop singers, a set of Bix Beidebecke including what is said to be the first ever recorded jazz ballad, and a set of the great jazz singers Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McCrae and Billie Holliday – all from live 1920s-60s radio and TV broadcasts.

If you’re at the computer rather than the radio, The Phantom Dancer is live-streamed Tuesday 12 – 2pm, http://www.2ser.com. And you can hear past Phantom dancers archived at 2ser.com as well. At 2ser.com, click on Program Guide, then Phantom Dancer in the Tuesday column, and scroll down for the show you want to hear.

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week is a music video, filmed in the Netherlands by the Roy Fox Orchestra in 1933, advertising the song, ‘Nobody’s Sweetheart’, for Decca Records. Enjoy!
