About Andy Senior

I have been a fan of early 20th century music as long as I can remember. Consequently, over the past 40+ years I have amassed a huge trove of pre-1940 recordings which I transfer and restore to create each week's edition of Radiola.

Broadcaster Comments
The music of the 1920s and 1930s has a lightness and a vitality totally lacking in other musical realms. Also, it could be sophisticated, smart, and funny. It is not the over-processed, demographically-targeted pop of later years. It was all in one take, all on one mike, spontaneous, and totally in the moment. Hence it is still fresh, joyous, and new, even after eight decades. Playlists and original broadcast dates for each program may be found at my Radiola! blog.
