The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 157

Legends Mix

Some more talk today and a bit less music, fifteen tracks only and pardon me for that, my dear listeners, I got carried away with some associations I made between thirties music and much later styles - where there has never been a real relationship between the songs I play and that later stuff. It's just why that stunning music caught me that I'm telling you about.

And if that's not enough, today also two bands with the same name, the near-bankruptcy of the Sun label, why a 78 sounds better today than in the forties and a vocal group leader underpaying his best lead singers. Plus, I'm happy that I got the internet to distribute my music, instead of having to ship 16 inch records to the radio station you're listening to. As I said - just a bit too much talk. Sorry 'bout that.
