Billy's Jazz Swing & Dixieland favourites

About the show

Playing tracks by

Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Bing Crosby & Bob Crosby's Bobcats, Count Basie, Humphrey Littleton and more.

Dedicated to my grandad Bill Armstrong. These are all records he gave me from his own collection and are some of his favourite artists.. not sure if I've chosen his favourite tracks, but I imagine this is the sort of swingin' vibe he would have heard when he visited the world famous Stork Club and other venues in New York during the war as a young sailor.

I found this website all about the Stork Club with some great images and history http://www.storkclub.com/stork-club-home.html

RIP grandad - Still smilin' xxx
