From 8 until 11 p.m., the air is filled with vintage jazz, swing, and big band recordings from the '20s, '30s, and '40s. Listen live at the link.
The host has been running this show since 1980 and ii's interesting to hear the background and stories about this era of music and the performers etc.

Right now in Japan listening to Charlie Parker With Strings on a sunny early March morning ...
Last week's show is archived for listening at the link also.
Bix Beiderbecke and the Wolverine Orchestra
Nice! Thank you!
Beiderbecke joined the Wolverine Orchestra late in 1923, and the seven-man group first played a speakeasy called the Stockton Club near Hamilton, Ohio. Specializing in hot jazz and recoiling from so-called sweet music, the band took its name from one of its most frequent numbers, Jelly Roll Morton's "Wolverine Blues."
Singin’ The Blues from 1927... what a classic. They clean up the sound really nicely.
Now moving to some Paul Whiteman recordings... hot trumpet and jazziness.
“Mississippi Mud” with Frankie Trumbauer (1928)
Now playing Artie Shaw from 1939.
Hot Jazz Saturday Night is on at the link again. . .
Starting off with Duke Ellington in 1926 before he went into the Cotton Club...
