Radio York Swings

Liz, Our Lady in York, has brought this Sunday night program broadcast on BBC Radio York from 6-9pm to my attention. Presented by Gary Copley it offers a choice selection of jazz, swing, big band and quality vocals. Somewhere along the way he has a Harry Connick Jnr. track coming up  In the north east, Connick's name will forever be linked with Crombie's so it is perhaps a fitting choice, however accidental (accidental? I don't know - some things are unexplainable!). Currently Copley's playing some Frank Wess tracks.
Thank you Liz.
Lance.
PS: Harry's just come on singing Our Love is Here to Stay (37 minutes in)

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
