Chucky T's In Love (Vol 1): A Twinkle In Daddy's Eye

Chucky T's In Love (Vol 1): A Twinkle In Daddy's Eye


About the show

Playing tracks by

Frank Sinatra, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson, Rosemary Clooney and more.

This is the first in a set of mixes devoted to love songs. The five-mix set spans the entire Baby Boomer experience - from 1946 until just yesterday.

I was nothing more than “A Twinkle In Daddy’s Eye” when this music was playing on the turntable while my older brother crawled around on the rug, crying outside Mom and Dad’s locked bedroom door. Many of these vocal artists toured with Big Bands before and during World War Two. Now they were spending more and more of their time in the studio, taking advantage of the latest, greatest recording technology.

Tinny-sounding 78 RPM vinyl records gave way to 33 1/3 RPM long-playing records early in the 50s. These LPs were recorded in the new "High Fidelity" sound but by the end of the decade Hi-Fi was superseded by the 2-channel recordings of Stereophonic LPs. And that’s when the general public really began to collect popular music.

This goes out to Sarah and Jerry - rugrats at that time and a delightfully romantic couple today.


Oh snap, there was a playback error!
