RADIOLA! NEW YEAR'S EVE SPECIAL -- INTERNET ONLY

(Week 105)

UPDATE: After the New Year's Eve Special I'm including a repeat of a RADIOLA! from January 13, 2006--"Say Si Si"--so that listeners on the West Coast can shake a leg, also.

I've assembled a program for New Year's Eve this year even though WHCL is still on break. I'll upload it to my Live365 station tonight (Dec. 31), and I'll restart the broadcast shortly before 11 PM Eastern Time (10 PM Central). This will throw off anyone already streaming, so please re-connect to hear the show. The special will last three hours, so those in the Central Time Zone can celebrate, too.

Andy......

Only caught some of this on Live365, but what I heard was choice!

Curtis Mosby & His Blue Blowers were another of those totally overlooked stompin' bands of the late 20's...one of my old radio partners played on some of Mosby's earlier recordings {brass bass}, but the discographies listed him with no first name and a close-but-not-quite-right last name, since, for legal/union reasons, they couldn't list him correctly {underage and no valid union card in '27}...."Mosby Stomp" was a killer disc by them....

The closing acts....Louis, Jelly Roll, "The King" & Fred Astaire.....My God, Man....a stroke of genius for the stroke of midnight.....

Happiest of New Years!!

Nick,

Thank you! I wanted to do a real New Year's Eve celebration, and I was very happy with how it all turned out.

I'm leaving it up for a while. This was a playlist I'm not going to top easily.
