Mostly Singles: 78s! Part 2 (Audio)

Dec 27, 2022

More of the greats, 1920s and vintage 1930s 10-inch shellac, in rich deep grooves: Barbecue Bob, Whispering Jack, Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang, Jabbo Smith and his Rhythm Aces, Canon’s Jug Stompers, Peg Leg Howell, Ukulele Ike, Irving Mills, and his Hotsy Totsy Gang — including Bix Beiderbecke — and other wonders. Stacks o’ sides. Artistry galore. True blue.

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.
