10 January Phantom Dancer – 1924 Sound Film Ben Bernie Jazz Orchestra


HEAR your Jan 10 Phantom Dancer mix ONLINE at 2SER radio

Today on your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio you’ll hear a set of Australian dance bands my parents danced to in the 1930s, Frank Coughlan and his Trocadero Orchestra, Jim Davidson and his ABC Dance Orchestra and Dudley Cantrell’s Grace Granadiers (who played in the Grace Brothers department store ballroom on Broadway in Sydney.)

There’s also a set of women band leaders on the wireless Ella, Billie, Anna Mae Winburn and a set of jazz from swinging 60s radio and TV by Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa and the Charlie Shavers Quartet without Charlie Shavers.

Eight sets in total – names, bands, song titles and the originating radio station and date are listed in the play list below.

The play list is after The Phantom Dancer video of the Week.

Here is The Phantom Dancer Video of the Week. “A very important bit of film, both for the history of Film and Music in the early twentieth century! Surely one of the earliest films with the sound printed on the nitrate film itself instead of a separate disc or cylinder. It was produced by the De Forest Phonofilm system, which unfortunately was met with little success because there was no backing by any major studio. All that came of it were a few films of mostly musical subjects – which were at the time still making records by the acoustic process!” Alex Allen, YouTube. 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.

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.

The Phantom Dancer kicks off with 1930s-40s airchecks by The Dipsy Doodler, swing band leader Larry Clinton.
The last hour is all vinyl.

Fearlessly searching YouTube for the swingiest, jazziest, weirdest ‘Video of the Week’, I’ve found a 1950s TV show featuring ‘Young America’s Favourite’ singer, Tony Martin. 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.
