UPCOMING BBJ PROGRAM TITLES
May 4-5, 2013
The fifties were a time when the Big Bands lost favor with the public and the singers took over, many of whom previously worked for Big Bands. We hear those singers as they appeared as solo performers into the '50s as they helped form a new kind of musical sound in America.
May 11-12, 2013
The truth is there weren't many estimable instrumental recordings in the fifties. We hear the few the recording industry was turning out at that time.
May 18-19, 2013
BOOGIE BEAT I
No music form reaches all ages as well as boogie-woogie. We launch into a two week investigation of that music form, played by well-known artists.
May 25-26, 2013
BOOGIE BEAT II
We hear three forms of this timeless music form, piano, small group and Big Band boogie-woogie. Two solid hours of boogie.
June 1-2, 2013
A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC
With apologies to Stephen Sondheim, we've borrowed his title to apply to a full program of music with some reference to 'night' in the title or lyrics. Generally a restful session.
June 8-9, 2013
Most often we restrict ourselves to a middle-ground so far as swing and sweet is concerned, but not in this BBJ session. It is as it's titled, and even though you may recoil at swing as "loud" you'll discover some absolutely gorgeous melody in this program.
June 15-16, 2013
ANITA O'DAY / LATER GENE KRUPA
We remember Anita O'Day with portions of an interview with her conducted shortly before her death. Logical to tie-in Gene Krupa, who first introduced Anita to the general public.
June 22-23, 2013
TOMMY DORSEY 'LIVE'
Some Big Band fans most enjoy the 'live' sound of a band as compared with a sterile studio setting. This program gives those fans two solid hours of Tommy Dorsey appearing 'live' in archival radio programs.
June 29-30, 2013
Producer Dave Riggs accepts the challenge to come up with a full program of songs having to do with birds; birds flying, birds singing, birds observed for their beauty.
