Mostly Singles: 78s! (Audio)

Nov 25, 2022

A celebration of 10-inch shellac, highlighting the greats: old-time country blues, guys in tuxedos, the 1920s and 1930s, crooners, lullabies, Whisperin’ Jack Smith. A cornucopia of legends and stellar musicians. Every side is full of snap crackle and pop. Lively, stirring, soaring, sensational.

Claverack resident Michael Wilde presents "Mostly Singles," selections from an extensive collection of 45 rpm vinyl — music from the 1950s, '60s, '70s and early '80s, mixed with some 78 rpm selections from American popular song and field recordings from the Library of Congress and folklore archives. Broadcast live from the Hudson studio.
