"Rosebud!" October 5, 2007

(Week 96)

Anachronalgia meets Nostalgia tonight on RADIOLA!

Having found the recording that led me down the path to 1920s and 1930s music, I asked a cross-section of listeners, broadcasters, and vintage music enthusiasts what selections occasioned similar epiphanies. I received many great responses (and have included a few more of my own early favorites)--and it makes for one terrific playlist! Here are the "Rosebud" moments I could fit into two hours of radio--to be broadcast tonight at 8 PM ET on WHCL:

Thanks again for your help here. (The sound file worked great!) I have the program in rotation on Live365. I think I may put it up on a-infos early, though.


Nick said...

Thanks, Andy!

There sure was one heckuva mix on this show....about as eclectic a blend as you'll find.

Great work...and I look forward to the podcast.
