Mambo Italiano: 78 RPM (Audio)

Nov 23, 2014
Hosted by Tom DePietro.
Get ready for this two-part extravaganza: Italian-American music in the era of 78s. A few intrepid 78 collectors have at last anthologized selections from the music published by and for the early wave of Italian immigrants. "Paese Mio Bello" ("My Beautiful Country") brings together 44 tracks of recordings from 1911-1939. And we'll hear them all over the next two months, with a few translators to help!
