"Eddie Lang Rarities" January 30, 2009

(Week 150)


For this RADIOLA! I am indebted to Mr. Ray Mitchell of the UK, author of Feeling My Way: A Discography of the Recordings of Eddie Lang 1923-1933. Mr. Mitchell has generously provided me the majority of the recordings featured on tonight's program, most of which are transfers from his rare originals. In fact, this theme will be continued next week with more of his selections and a few of my own.

Tune in tonight at 8 PM Eastern to WHCL, with streaming HERE. This show will be uploaded to my Live365 station this weekend.
