"Move or Die" November 6, 2015

(Week 441)

This RADIOLA! asserts that motion is better than its alternative.

RADIOLA! streams continuously from my Live365 station. Syncopate for your life-cast here. Each RADIOLA! program is sent to subscribers on my mailing list (email here).

On this program I mention that I am writing for The American Rag, a monthly publication dedicated to ragtime and early jazz. (Subscribe here to read it--it's print-only.)

Required reading: my recent profile on Eli Newberger (originally published in The American Rag), and an excellent article by Peter Gerler that is most encouraging: What It Means That We Are Lindy Hopping Again.

Unless otherwise noted, the recordings used in this program are from Jeff Healey's American Dance Band collection database, with my own minor audio restoration.
