This show should satisfy anyone who likes the jazziest, swingin’-est sounds that came out of this era.
First Song Keep on Jumping
Goldin dates this program as recorded October 30, 1944, released March 10, 1945.
“Jubilee” always had a lineup of incredible talent, and this episode is no exception: Earl “Fatha” Hines,
June Richmond, Mantan Moreland & Ben Carter,
Slim Gaillard, The Loumel Morgan Trio, and The Town Criers.
By looking at the exhaustive discography that was available for free online, I learned that one of the singers in “The Town Criers” is Lucy Ann Polk.
You will hear her in several other free downloads available here.
And of course the host is the unstoppable Ernie “Bubbles” Whitman.
And I’ll add a word about the time of year:
So many websites I’m visiting in the past month has been fundraising, even archive.org. As I recall, I got a whole lot of my old-time radio because they put in the work to make it available to me, so I’m planning a donation to them*.
Same here, friends! If you got a few shows because of the hard work that our volunteers did, please make a donation to us, so that we can continue to make our collection available to you.
*(And if anyone can tell me why archive.org will no longer accept our announcements of new downloads, please let us know.)
