This week’s Phantom Dancer Video of the Week is “I’ll See You In My Dreams”, the 1920s Cliff Edwards song played by Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters and which I sometimes use to close the national edition of The Phantom Dancer.

‘Stars In Jazz’ TV Show Jack Teagarden. Phantom Dancer Show 13 Jan 2015


Hello Phantom Dancers,

I had planned this 13 Jan. show to be the first live 2SER Phantom Dancer radio show for 2015 (I was on holidays last week). But I’ve been booked to do voiceovers for a commercial radio station. The book is for just when the Phantom Dancer goes to air.

So, of course, I immediately deferred to entertainment experts to carefully hand pick a premium, bespoke encore Phantom Dancer presentation for you taken off the very top shelf.

These PhDs in entertainment are 99.99998% sure you will enjoy today’s classic selection, especially the two add-on numbers at the end of the show by Lee Morse and the Adolf Steimel Organum-Tanz-Orchester.

HEAR THE SHOW NOW (until February)

What’s more, this Tuesday’s Phantom Dancer, 12 noon 107.3 2SER Sydney, online at 2ser.com, and on over 30 stations of the Community Radio Network, will also bring to your eager ears live 1920s-60s radio by John Kirby and his Sextet, the Johnny Guanieri Quintet, and Sandman from a 1935 Congress Hotel broadcast by the Benny Goodman Orchestra. And there’s a couple of songs by Mildred Bailey.

You can see the full play list after this week’s Phantom Dancer Video of the Week. This week’s video is Jack Teagarden and his All-Stars on a ‘Stars In Jazz’ TV Show, Los Angeles TV, 1956. The host is singer, Bobby Troup, lyricist for the songs Route 66 and My City Of Sydney. And all the great 50s ads are intact! Back to dramatic Demonstrations in Physics with Julius Sumner Miller next week.

Cheers,
Greg Poppleton
Your Phantom Dancer.

HEAR the 21 OCT SHOW ONLINE at 2SER.COM

 

NOW, it’s Week 2 in the Festival of Giving. That’s the 2SER Supporter Drive. 2SER is 35 years old this year! Happy Birthday, 2SER.

The Phantom Dancer has been on 2SER 107.3 Sydney every week, and for some years twice a week, for 29 of those years, since 1985, thanks to your financial support each year on Supporter Drive.

In fact, The Phantom Dancer, swing and jazz from live 1920s – 1960s radio and TV can only stay on 2SER, and 2SER can only stay on air, through your support.

Once a year 2SER asks you to financially support the station so if you like what we do then this is your opportunity to help us keep doing what we do – tell a lover, a friend, a family member or your pet !!

As well as supporting 2SER’s cutting edge stories, music and ideas, there are plenty of prizes up for grabs and this year if you sign up with your lover or another, you will get a night in on 2SER. (see website for details)

Support The Phantom Dancer on this Tuesday’s show October 21.
It feels good to give, and we want to say thank you for listening.

Call in your support during The Phantom Dancer 02 9514 9500 or support The Phantom Dancer online.

See today’s The Phantom Dancer Supporter Drive play list below.

And as this week’s Phantom Dancer Video of the Week, enjoy Part 8 in our 48 part series of ‘Demonstrations in Physics’. Filmed at ABC Sydney in 1969, the always entertaining Professor Julius Sumner Miller uses toys to excite us about Fluid Dynamics. Enjoy!
