Thanks. I've got roughly 300 or so of this genre in my collection, and hopefully I'll be able to share it all. The best part is that now I'm listening to all of these as I post.

Fyi, you can hear streams of this music on Radio Dismuke, Hot Jazz Saturday Night (with Rob Bamberger) and the 1920s Radio Network (see my links). All free and no commercials.
