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.

This station now streams at 56kpbs for better sound quality. As always, new shows will be added each week as they are published.
