29 March Phantom Dancer – Frances Carroll and the Coquettes Vitaphone Short (1939)


The 29 March Phantom Dancer is your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1930s – 1950s radio and TV with Greg Poppleton on 107.3 2SER.

Today we’ve got the Blues from 1945 radio, Rock’n’Roll from 1956 radio, Swing from 1930s radio, Singers on 1940s radio and Dance Bands from 1933 radio.

The Johnny Otis Orchestra plays the blues in 1945. Otis claimed to have ‘invented’ rock’n’roll. So it’s no coincidence that the set following Otis’ features Downbeat’s No. 1 rock’n’roll dance band for 1956 – Count Basie. And the Count in turn is backing acts on the ‘King of Rock’n’Roll’s’ live 1956 CBS radio show, ‘Alan Freed’s Saturday Night Rock’n’Roll Dance Party’.

Listen NOW ONLINE at 2ser.com

The final hour of the mix is all vinyl.

The Phantom Dancer is also conveniently live-streamed as the show goes to air on Tuesdays 12 – 2pm EDST (1 – 3am GMT), http://www.2ser.com.

After the Tuesday broadcast, you can hear the show and past Phantom Dancers online at 2ser.com/Phantom_Dancer.

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week is a 1939 Vitaphone short featuring Frances Carroll and her Swing Orchestra with the stunning drumming of Viola Smith (one of her sisters plays clarinet in The Coquettes).

Smith penned an article in 1942 for Down Beat magazine titled “Give Girl Musicians a Break!”.

She argued that woman musicians could play just as well as men, writing, “In these times of national emergency, many of the star instrumentalists of the big name bands are being drafted. Instead of replacing them with what may be mediocre talent, why not let some of the great girl musicians of the country take their place?” Why is there still such a gender imbalance in popular music today?

Enjoy!
