8 Dec Phantom Dancer Swing Mix – Julius Sumner Miller on Pascal’s Principle


Your Tuesday 8th December Phantom Dancer on 107.3 2SER is introduced by Woody Herman and the ‘Win-A-Band’ Contest. There’s a set of Bing and Rosemary Clooney and George Barnes plays some hot licks on his electric guitar on live 1941 radio that would put every indie rock guitarist to shame – especially since these same licks from the very early 40s became part of the very limited vocabulary of rock.

We also have the great pleasure of hearing Errol Buddle (who continues to play in Sydney) and Jack Brokensha (who was a Motown Records star in the 1960s) in the Australian Jazz Quintet from Birdland over NBC in 1956.
