The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 151

Legends Mix

I got a large amount of pre-war music in today's set, going back as far as the late twenties. I hope you like that old stuff 'cause it's got some very special things in it.

Among today's playlist: an a-capella song that made it to a hardrock classic; early jungle trumpeting; a reversed Uncle Sam blues and one of my favorite feelgood Depression swing tunes - play it loud.
