Egyptian Ella – New Greg Poppleton Video


Huzzah!

The new video by Greg Poppleton …

Egyptian Ella by Walter Doyle (1930) – from the album Back In Your Own Backyard

Greg Poppleton and his 1920s-30s swing and jazz band come from Way Down South –
so far south, in fact, that the next stop is Antarctica!

Enjoy…

We love playing 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing

And we believe in sharing this music at free shows and uploads

But we still have to eat

We believe that for artists to survive and create, audiences need to step up and directly support them…

If you’re broke,
add this to your play list.
Kick in later when you have the money

If you’re rich,
think of the good karma your support will bring you

We ask for only $1

That’s 1/3 the price of a coffee

And this song will last you forever

Thank you.

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.
