"Surveillance" September 26, 2008

(Week 140)

This RADIOLA! is in observance of the new law requiring Hamilton College to monitor student internet activity, lest students feel tempted to download music or commit some other heinous online act. Paranoia, here we come!

Also, I celebrate the new CD by the West End Jazz Band, "Sunny Side Up."

Tune in tonight at 8 PM Eastern on WHCL (with carefully monitored streaming HERE). I'll upload the show to my Live365 Station if the Feds don't get to me first.

Andy.....any program that finishes off with Annette singing cannot be bad!

However, your inclusion of such choice nuggets as different as Eddie Lang with very, very early Mildred Bailey, Aaronson "Let's Misbehave" {always had a weakness fir that recording}, and some Lee Wiley from early in her recording career, places this show a notch or two higher than most of your excellent efforts!
