Swing time!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the news is bad enough, with American hostages of terrorists in Africa – expect more of that after Behghazi and Algiers, Iranians, drug lords, executive orders (I can go on and on), that I’m actively seeking refuge in the music that carried our great nation through the Great Depression and World War II. Things were worse then, but give the folks now in Washington enough time and things will be worse now.

For the past three evenings at 7-8PM I’ve been playing swing music on Spotify, and sharing the music on my Tweeter and Facebook feeds. (I’m easy to find in both Tweeter and Facebook, as “Fausta”, i.e., https://twitter.com/Fausta https://www.facebook.com/fausta.)

Tuesday was Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, last night it was (early) Artie Shaw, tonight’s Benny Goodman.

Tomorrow (if I stay home) will be Glenn Miller.

Tweet your requests, and enjoy!

    Four guys in a car in Atlantic City long before the casinos, looking for a reasonable place to stay, listening to the radio. Suddenly, something none of us had ever heard–the Carnegie Hall version of Sing, Sing, Sing–Goodman, Krupa, James, at their best–reached out an grabbed us by the psyche, and we had to pull over and listen. Once in a lifetime experience.

    Wow, jlh! That must have been something! Can you imagine being at Carnegie Hall during that?
