1/5/2010 Dig Up The Roots

 

The music in this show is from the mid 1920's through the late 1930's, with a few weird Rock N' Roll exceptions from the 1950's. Parlor tunes Piano rolls; rowdy questionable behavior; Crooners Cowboys, we got it all right here in Americanaville.

Many musical events and sounds forged the bastard child of music that they eventually called Rock N' Roll. We heard bits and examples of some, it would take years to get to the bottom of this.

Some of this music I have gotten on cassettes many many years ago. When there is not accurate Label +/or Artist information, there will be 1 of 2 notations: UA stands for Unknown Artist. NA stands for Not Available.
