Swingtime Goes Showtime
There’s no business like (swinging) show business! This week on Swingtime Ian McLean looks at songs from the world of musical theatre that swing — classics like “Hello Dolly”, “Big Spender”, “Cabaret”, and “I Got Rhythm” along with “A Bushel and a Peck”, “Mack the Knife”, and even a swing version of “Tomorrow” from Annie. Artists featured include Fred Astaire, Sarah Vaughn, Cleo Lane, and Laura Fygi as well as Henry Mancini and Robert Mandell with their respective orchestras and chorus.
Tune in to Swingtime on Wednesday 3 April from 4-5pm for an hour of swinging show tunes.
Every weekday afternoon it’s time for ArtSound FM’s dedicated team to accompany you with Disc Drive, our program of great music, arts interviews, reviews, and Arts Diary. The program features Australian Independent Radio News, weather bulletins on the hour and interviews with local community organisations.
Step back in time with “Hit Parade of Yesterday” – Vintage music from the 20s & 30s, more precisely, 1926-1937, jazz, big bands, and some Australian bands, personalities and music from the movies are featured. Original recordings are used. A monthly special highlights a personality or a band or, perhaps, a type of music or dance. This program began in March 1978!
Blue Notes will showcase contemporary blues music, with a heavy emphasis on new release Australian music.
A lively and very different way to start the day, with a mix of quality music, commentary, arts news, interviews, information and features. The program features Australian Independent Radio News, Arts Diaries and weather bulletins on the hour.
