"Winter Song" December 11, 2009 INTERNET ONLY

(Week 190)

UPDATE: This program is now available as a 128k mp3 download: HOUR 1 and HOUR 2.

This RADIOLA! settles in with some delightful shellac originals retrieved from two estate sales one week ago today. Included in this trove are six vocal selections from the 1932 "studio cast" of Show Boat.

Owing to the Hamilton College hockey game, this program will not be broadcast on WHCL--but will be available for download in 128k mp3 format from RADIOLABLOG and the RADIOLA! Facebook fan page, with continuous streaming on my Live365 station by late Friday afternoon.

Many thanks again to Mark Fuller (host of RETRO RADIO, heard 8 PM Saturdays on WHCL-FM) for directing me to where these records lurked.

This is the best show I've ever heard you do, and I've been listening for years.

Wow! This is a superb show and this is the first time I've listened.

I'm a huge fan of Willard Robison and his music and compositions. I'm working on a personal compilation of his work performed by other artists. "Lonely Acres in the West" is fabulous.
