Ohhh wow... I was outside refilling the feedres and came in and there on WETA is a special on the BIG BANDS!! Glenn Miller!! Ohhh wow.. my parents raised me on the Big Bands!!!!
Now THAT was music!!!!
You are right Deb - I grew up with Big Band music too. Wish they would bring it back.
ohhhhhhhh me too! Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman...IN THE MOOD....String of Pearls.. Little Brown Jug....
I hated the big bands. Give me good old Rock and Roll anyday. We could only hear it on Radio Luxembourg on short wave till the records came across the pond.
Now I still play those old records but listen to classical more.
All our yesterdays what what.
I liked Big Bands and have my parents original 45 recods of Glenn miller's.. my folks almost had a stroke when The Beatles came on to the scene... Oh YEAHHHHH!
I still have Elvis 'Blue suede shoes', Heartbreak Hotel,Teddy Bear all on 78 rpm records. They are a bit worn as I used to play them on a wind-up Gramaphone. We never had portable record players till about 1960 so we used to have this old wind up player and would have a party under the pier ( much to the oldies disgust)
An illspent youth ho ho.
In the school Holidays I used to work on the beaches all day and party at night and then back to work in the morning. It would kill me now but then it was great
Life is meant to be enjoyed not endured.
