The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 260

Soothing Swing

for feverish minds

I had the flu this week, listeners, and while sweating off my fever under the blankets I could only find comfort in a few great swing numbers that are on my mp3 player. So today's set, that I compiled in between warming up again in my bed, is made of this soothing swing that I kept on playing on repeat. I left the research work and stories for another time if you don't mind. Bear with me and enjoy the music.
