28 March 2017 Phantom Dancer – I’ll See You In My Dreams Video


On this week’s Phantom Dancer radio show – your two hour non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV presented by Greg Poppleton since 1985:
– a set of Billie Holliday on 1950s radio, 1930s radio dance bands, Latin rhythms on 1940s-60s radio and a set of ground-breaking jazz saxophonists. See the play list below.

Live-streamed and archived online at 2ser.com, your Phantom Dancer is heard on over 22 radio stations.

In the Phantom Dancer mix this week: airchecks by Red Nichols from 1929 radio, the early Benny Goodman swing band on 1934-37 radio and star women singers on 1940s-50s radio.

Your Phantom Dancer video of the Week is a reflective piece I filmed at Waiheke in New Zealand last year. Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters were playing at the Waiheke International Jazz Festival. The music is from the latest Greg Poppleton album ‘ Back In Your Own Backyard’ available now on CD and Mp3 at Bandcamp. 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!

Thank you.

Jack Payne BBC Dance Orchestra Live 1931. Phantom Dancer 22 July 2014


By Gum, Phantom Dancers,

Today’s (22 July) Phantom Dancer is now online for your listening and dancing pleasure – until September.

I ran out of time on the 8 July show to play you the great live 1930s radio swing and jazz by Fats Waller, Duke Ellington I had listed in the play list for you. And I had to talk over Count Basie to say goodbye and close the show. Plus, I missed out playing you the scheduled Singing Sam track and Big Noise From Winnetka live on the wireless by the Bob Crosby crew.

So this week all those wonderful airchecks will be played, plus more swing and jazz from 1930s-50s radio and TV by Vaughn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Bunny Berrigan and more. See the play list below.

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week is a fine example of how valuable it is to record your favourite radio shows, like The Phantom Dancer, at home.

Here is a home recording made 29 January 1931 of four songs by Jack Payne and the BBC Dance Orchestra broadcasting live from ‘The London Studio’. Enjoy!
