"New Year's Record Party 2017" December 31, 2016

(Week 452)

This long-overdue RADIOLA! observes the yearly changing of the calendar with the requisite gaggle of shellac recordings. May your New Year be better than expected!

Recent RADIOLA! programs may be streamed here at your convenience. Maybe nothing bad will happen-cast here. Each RADIOLA! program is sent to subscribers on my mailing list (email here).

RADIOLA! is brought to you sporadically by (and in spite of) The Syncopated Times. Please consider subscribing. My (not disinterested) opinion is that it's a delightful paper.

Discographical information for certain selections below (particularly those on the Victor and Columbia labels) may be found using this excellent site: Discography of American Historical Recordings.

Just before recording this program I was shocked and saddened to hear that my friend Rich Conaty, host of The Big Broadcast, died on December 30. RADIOLA! would never have come to be without Rich's inspiration and encouragement. Therefore, this program is dedicated to his memory.
