Preview: Vintage Chart Toppers on RTHK

Tomorrow (Sunday Sept. 6) Colin Aitchison presents his weekly Vintage Chart Toppers Show on RTHK: Radio 3.

On the programme, Tyneside expatriate bandleader Colin, who has led the China Coast Jazzmen at Kowloon night club Ned Kelly's Last Stand for many years, spins discs from the distant past with the occasional guest dropping virtually by for a chat.

Such a guest tomorrow is guitarist/vocalist Roly Veitch. Roly, who runs the Blaydon Jazz Club held, in happier times, at the Black Bull in Blaydon on Tyne will be talking to Colin about the club and the many musicians who have played there as well as his own tastes in jazz.

The programme goes out at 8:30am HKT which is the equivalent of 01:30am BST. However, later on, it can be heard online here.

Excellent choice of records - I wonder who the soloists were with Lou Preager?
Also, I didn't catch the name of the Pee Wee Hunt number. Fantastic harmonies from The Hi-Los and what a great interview with Roly. Nice version of I Saw Stars by Roly's Swing City Trio - Coleman Hawkins lives!

Oh and thanks Colin for giving BSH a plug!

An all-too-short half hour. I wonder, who was the piano playing vocalist on the station ident?
