Non-Stop Flight

Desperately trying to post more than once a month, for Dec. 7th here is another Shaw collection from the time when Europe was already in the early stages of WWII. If you're like me, you'll like the imperfect sound from these live airchecks of Artie Shaw for the fact that they're not crisp and clean. It helps me imagine the music coming from the one big speaker from a 30's radio. I don't mind the announcer talking over the intros, or the corny chit-chat. In any case, the music is great and there are some very good tunes here. I just wish we had more of these live broadcasts. In the future I will post another Shaw broadcast with Robert Benchley. Enjoy. +

Thanks, D. I'm still waiting for our stuff to arrive. Once that happens I'll be able to post more frequently - and listen to my 78s again!

Thank you! Great post.

I'm with you . . . the music is GREAT, but the radio broadcasts add a real flavor of the times that make the whole experience just more fun.

I wonder what band those wild and crazy college kids voted their favorite at this year's Princeton prom?

Lady Gaga, perhaps?
