Swingin' Years

Sundays at 8:00pm
  • Hosted by Chuck Cecil

A musical expression called "Rock n' Roll" was just developing in 1956 when Chuck Cecil started a radio show called the Swingin' Years. The idea was to perpetuate the memory of swing music by Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, The Dorseys, Artie Shaw, Guy Lombardo, Count Basie...original records 1935 to 1955. 58 years later, Cecil is still spinning yarns and the 78 r.p.m. records.
