Fragments of thought and bursts of creativity from the wordsmith, podcaster and journalist, author of the Myke Phoenix Novelettes, Refuse to be Afraid, A Scream of Consciousness, and The Imaginary Revolution.
In this last episode of UWs78rpm’s first season, we revisit old friends like Billy Murray, Ed Smalle, Aileen Stanley, Cathy Mastice and Alma Gluck, play the blues and say G’Bye Now ? hopefully just for now!

Most of the tunes in this episode are from a pile of 12-inch recordings that date from 1906 to 1927 that I found at an estate sale last week. We start out with the 1812 Overture and conclude with this episode’s outlier from 1938.
Episode 12 is sponsored by the book Refuse to Be Afraid by an author I know named Warren Bluhm, available for Kindle or in paperback.

In addition to four tunes that are reinterpreted on those albums, we’ve got The Carlisles, Hank Thompson, Bill Haley and his Comets, and other goodies:
Getting familiar with a new old jazz master I never encountered before, thanks to a suggestion from my dad, leads me to reminiscing about listening to Les Brown and his Band of Renown on Saturday mornings growing up … and more, on our 10th excursion into the era when life sped by at 78 revolutions per minute!

Season 1 of UWs78rpm will be 13 episodes long, so soon I’ve got to decide whether the show will keep going. If you like these little forays into the past, tell your friends, share the link, leave a review on iTunes, and do any of the other things people ask you to do support a podcast.
The more downloads the show gets, the more I’ll know people want to keep hearing these grand old tunes from a time when life sped by at 78 revolutions per minute!
