This week’s Phantom Dancer is a bespoke, hand-picked classic since I’ll be filming a TV commercial when the show normally goes live.

You’ll hear a set of Count Basie as a rock’n’roll band on CBS Radio in 1956, a set of swing bands from 1937-39 radio including a toy piano solo, a set of jazz on 1948-52 TV and more.

See the full play list below.

The Phantom Dancer is your non-stop 2 hour mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio every week online and on 2SER radio.

The final hour of the mix is all vinyl.

The Phantom Dancer is live-streamed as the show goes to air on 107.3 2SER Sydney, Tuesdays 12 – 2pm (12 – 2am GMT) and repeated 5 – 6pm Sundays, http://www.2ser.com

The show is then archived for you to listen to any time at 2ser.com/Phantom_Dancer.

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week is a 1929 Vitaphone short of the AMAZING singing Baby Rose Marie, aged around 6 in 1929. She is the only pre-World War 2 hit maker still living in 2016. Wiki bio.
