Mostly Singles: 78s! Part 3 (Audio)

Jan 24, 2023

More of the greats, from the Golden Age — Blind Blake, Tram and Bix, Annette Hanshaw, Whispering Jack, Savoy Orpheans, Rhythm Maniacs, Delmore Brothers, King Oliver on cornet, and possibly Hoagy Carmichael on bottle percussion — and that’s just to start things off. Listen to an evening of musical pioneers, and the pops, squeaks, and crackles of vintage shellac. It only gets better and better.

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.
