A Special Rebroadcast for New Year's 2021

 I have been hectically busy editing and laying out The Syncopated Times this month and dealing with all the business appertaining thereto, so I'm remiss in not creating a new program for this New Year's Eve. It's a commonplace to say that this year, 2020, is one that we should be particularly happy to be rid of. In order to fill the void of silence, I'm refreshing an old show I did in December 2008, "London Calling," that features three hours of delightful British dance band music from the 1920s and 1930s. Here is the playlist. I produced the program in observance of the sad fact that BBC Radio 2 had stopped including this enchanting music in their lineup. These tunes will provide a suitable accompaniment to the celebration of chasing that mean old man, 2020, out the door.
