Andy....

Very glad to see The Georgians & Virginia Liston's..uh....classic included....plus your choosing a cut from Mildred Bailey's incredible session in 1935 {with Teddy Wilson, Bunny Berigan & Johnny Hodges as part of her quartet? Man!} deserves kudos, too.

Add to that some 20's then 30's Fats Waller and, to top it off, some Milton Brown & His Musical Brownies {Milton really was the "Father Of Western Swing"}....you are on a roll, Mr. Senior!

Thanks, Nick!

I thought it went well, and I got to kick some BBC Radio 4 butt besides!
