UPCOMING BBJ PROGRAM TITLES
July 20-21, 2013
JAZZ STANDARDS I
In any business, good performance rises to the top. That's true of the music business. In this program we hear the recordings that have made a difference over the years...the ones recalled by most band fans.
July 27-28, 2013
JAZZ STANDARDS II
There are so many ice-breaking recordings it's necessary to devote another program to the same subject. We expand our look into the arrangements that have become permanent in the minds of listeners.
August 3-4, 2013
Each of the major record labels in music history has its own story. We discover how the name came about as well as listen to the top Columbia recordings advancing the Big Band sound.
August 10-11, 2013
Two of the artists keeping the Decca label alive were Bing Crosby and Guy Lombardo, but there were others. We attempt to bring into focus the musical history of that label.
August 17-18, 2013
For some years the Victor label was the victor in the sale of recordings. We check out the background of that story and hear how Victor forged their sound with such bands as Miller and Dorsey.
August 24-25, 2013
The youngest record company of the majors began against all odds in 1942. There was a shellac shortage, they were centered on the West Coast and they featured some virtually unknown artists.
August 31 / September 1, 2013
The names of trains, the sound of trains, the reference to trains, the romance of trains; all contribute to this imaginative and highly entertaining review of recordings based on every aspect of trains.
September 7-8, 2013
FREE FORM FROLIC
This is the program allowing us to dig into the record library to come up with selections we may not have thought of before. Sometimes this works out extremely well.
September 14-15, 2013
FORTIES SONGBOOK (GIRLS)
Recalling all the ladies who created so much emotion and entertainment with their songs during the 1940s, both with the Big Bands and as independent singers. They knew how to sing.

FORTIES SONGBOOK (BOYS)
There was a different quality to singers in the forties. It was a combination of sincerity and talent along with genuine musical ability. We review some of the boy singers.
September 28-28, 2013
Over the years there have been numerous significant conversations with musicians, writers, singers, bandleaders and arrangers. We review some of those conversations as we recall highlights of the Big Band Era.
