About bostonswing

I am a "young at heart" (nearly 80years old) pensioner. My musical tastes cover a wide range but in particular Swing - Big Band - Jazz - Organ and Country Music from the 40's (or earlier) through to the 80's and later. I have been a sports commentator and music presenter for Hospital Radio and had shows specialising in Big Band, Organ and Country Music. The station was first heard on January 4th 2004 so I am now celebrating 10 years on Live365. So what will you hear? Well, music from all the Big Bands of yester-year e.g. Glen Miller, Harry James, Glen Gray, Ted Heath, Stan Kenton etc. etc. and also many newer ones that are playing today. Jazz comes from artists such as Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins, Milt Jackson, Tubby Hayes etc,etc. and there is Dixieland and Trad Jazz from bands like Alex Welsh, Chris Barber, Ted Easton, Eddie Condon etc.etc. There are many solo musicians not forgetting the male and female vocalists. Why not give the programme a listen? I am always pleased to receive e-mails so let me know if you enjoy the station and its music. To my all listeners may I wish you a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year in 2015.
