New generations are thrilling for the first time to the sounds of Swing and Big Band music which first emerged from the greatest period of American popular music. Orchestra leaders like Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Glenn Miller are capturing their dancing interests, while vocalists like Frank Sinatra, Billy Holiday and Helen Forrest are capturing their romantic interests. Swing Street Radio host and program director Craig Roberts shares his broad knowledge of Big Band and Swing music, and draws from a collection of over 15,000 popular and rare recordings that span from the infancy of jazz in the 1920’s to the Great Depression to World War II. Artist Profiles and listener requests round out two lively hours of great Swing & Big Band music!
