3/3/2009 Dig Up The Roots

 

Another show featuring 78 RPM records and the Ancient Mix-Master. We had several specific sets and a few random tethers during today's program.

A set of International Folk dances on the Folk Dancer label out of New York. These were intended for School music classes and can sometimes be found with the Mimeograph instructions still inside. Often un-credited musicians and groups provide some great music. We then went into a set of Square Dances, complete with 'Official Callers', no bogus callers for this audience!

Syncopation, Jazz From The Philharmonic and a thrilling tale: Destination Moon were some of the ends and odds that filled the show out...and a good time was had by all.
