Radio Dismuke now has a companion blog that subsumes the purpose of the web site's old "Hit of the Week" section (which will still be around as an archive). Radio Dismuke has been around for quite some time, but in case you haven't heard of it, it's an Internet radio station that focuses on music from 1925-1935:
Discover the exciting music from one of the most vibrant decades in popular culture and entertainment. From the boom times of the "Roaring '20s" to the hard times of the Great Depression...from frantic Charlestons danced to by a generation of flappers to sentimental ballads performed by the early crooners...from the hot jazz bands of the top Harlem nightclubs to the popular dance bands of the formative years of the swing and big band eras, the great music of the 1920s & 1930s lives on and is entertaining a new generation of enthusiastic listeners. Radio Dismuke features original recordings from the 1925 - 1935 decade and can be heard at no cost from anywhere in the world by anyone with an Internet connection and a sound card equipped computer.The new blog format will save Dismuke time -- something I have gained a new appreciation for lately (blogging as I am right now with a baby sleeping in my lap) -- and the new format takes advantage of new ways to access and share the music that have emerged since the site went up in the 1990's.
Do stop by and take a look around. Whether you're already a regular there or are just curious, I think you'll find it worth your while.
