"A RADIOLA! Winter Carnival" January 15, 2010

I'm offering another show from the archives this week, originally broadcast February 19, 2007--and appropriately Winter-themed. Some excellent jazz here, including selections by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks and The West End Jazz Band.

This show is available for download in 128k mp3 format here: HOUR 1 and HOUR 2. A lower-bitrate version is available at THIS LINK, and it has been uploaded to my Live365 station.

Been a long time since I've had the time to drop a note, Andy - doesn't mean I haven't been listening when I can!

The Winter Carnival, as I've said about so many of your shows in the past, is filled with treats, expected and otherwise.

The idea of 128k downloads is great, too....the 32k compression is so severe, especially considering the limited sonic spectrum of pre-LP recordings.

Keep up the noble efforts to keep great vintage music alive - it's being killed off in so many ways; record labels shutting down, radio formats abandoned, even Internet sources of just a few months ago your program remains one of the few that bring back not only the well-known vintage classics, but the many, many lesser known gems you keep digging up!

Thank you! Next week I may be doing an actual WHCL broadcast but I needed to post some moldy oldies for a couple of weeks. I'm glad you're enjoying them!
