"Contented Soliloquy" October 1, 2010

(Week 227)

This RADIOLA! admits that there are worse things than being alone. (Hanging out in Social Networking-land begins to feel like being gnawed to death by chipmunks.) We also remember the great Al Gallodoro, who died two years ago on October 4, 2008.

Thanks a million for your wonderful music. I love the recording by the Victor Salon Orchestra. Absolutely elegant and refined. The violins are heavenly. I remember awhile back you broadcast Scrappy Lambert singing "Me and My Shadow" I was trying to find it but it doesn't seem to be available online anymore. I would really love to hear it again.

Thanks again.
I look forward to hearing your show every week.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed that recording. Because it's not jazz or hot dance or a vocal, it's not likely to appear on most "vintage" shows--but it's a worthy performance, and one that I was happy to play.

You'll find the Scrappy Lambert version of "Me and My Shadow" on this program, which I did three years ago:

I believe it's in the second hour.

Thanks again,
